    Chef Kate's Note:

    From Colette Rossant, a really remarkable sauce for kofta that really can be used on all sorts of dishes--grilled lamb brochette, grilled or roasted vegetables, etc. And it's very easy to make. Substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock and you have the makings of a lovely vegetarian meal. Most of the time is soaking time--though you can find dried Turkish apricots which are quite soft and require little or no soaking.
