Cold weather kofta?


I was given lamb kofta in my CSA share. It is spiced with coriander, cumin, garlic, paprika, and ginger.

I have limited experience with Middle Eastern cuisine, and I've always thought of it almost exclusively as warm-weather food. I can't wrap my head around a dish suitable for the 15-degree day we're having in NYC right now. Any ideas?

There are plenty of parts of the Middle East where it gets pretty chilly, snowy etc. when it's wintertime. I suppose the citizens there must have options in their cuisine to cover all times of the year.

If it's meaty, filling, and hot, and especially if it takes a long time cooking (heating up the house), wouldn't any dish be suitable for 15 degree weather?
