I made this recipe recently. I tried to bake one in the microwave, just to try it out. It turned out like a rock. Also, it started burning in the microwave. I did another, for less time and same thing. Finally I decided to fry the koftas instead of baking and the recipe worked great. Everyone enjoyed. I suggest, just fry the koftas following the recipe and the result comes great.
