  • These is a very traditional Turkish Recipe.You can use beef or lamb also..
  • 1 lb lean ground lamb 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice 
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 2 tablespoons parsley 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 


1 Make the bread crumbs by breaking up 

2 slices of stale but not dried out whole wheat bread into the bowl of a food processor. 2 
   Whizz until finely crumbed. 

3 Add the ground lamb and the egg, and process until blended. 

4 Add the spices, garlic and parsley. 

5 Process the meat well to achieve a fine texture. 

6 Roll the mixture into small meatballs (I use a melonballer) or finger shaped patties using 
  dampened hands. 

7 You may cook them at once, or refrigerate the mixture for several hours. 

8 (If your meat is very fresh, you can divide it in half and wrap part well in plastic for the 
   next day's meal.) Heat the oil in a heavy skillet, and fry the balls or patties until cooked 
   through and evenly browned. 

9 The meatballs should be stirred several times, the patties turned once. 

10 Remove them with a slotted spoon to drain. 

11 Serve the meatballs hot or at room temperature as an appetizer. 

12 Lovely with a yogurt or tahini sauce, on a bed of rice or in a pita.
