I believe Lamb Koftas originated from the middle east, however as people have immigrated they are now very well known recipe in Greece. 

WHAT SPICES ARE IN LAMB KOFTA

Traditionally, cumin, coriander, paprika, ground cinnamon, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper

However, when I make them I use a pre-made Turkish seasoning that can be found at Superstore as seen below.

It does not all spice though so I do add that along with garlic powder as the only other addition.
