This is  another delicious recipe - a family favourite

  • 400 g lean minced beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 slice bread
  • 2 tbls fresh parsley
  • salt 
  • oil, for frying the meatballs

First put bread and onion in a food processor and pulse it 2-3 times. Add the mince and the rest of the ingredents in the processor and mix it well or pulse it. Now take the mixture - about 1 tsp at a time - and roll each into a small circle. You should get about 40 meatballs, using half of the mixture which should be enough for two people. You can either freeze the other half or fry it all and keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Shallow fry the meatballs in a pan on medium heat for about 10 minutes until they are browned.
Serve them with rice and salad or with noodles.
They are also good on little sticks as a party dish or appetizer.
