Combine the bulgur wheat and vegetable stock in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, or until liquid has been absorbed. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the adzuki beans, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, onion, garlic, cumin, coriander, cilantro, hot sauce, and the egg. Mash with a potato masher or sturdy whisk until fairly smooth. Soak the bread in milk, then squeeze out the excess; add to the bean mixture along with the bulgur.
Mix using your hands until everything is well blended. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Wet your hands, and form the kofta into 32 oval shapes. Press onto skewers four at a time.
Brush with remaining olive oil.
Place on a baking sheet or broiling pan.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn over, brush again with oil, and continue baking for 5 to 10 minutes, until crispy.
