These make lovely buffet and party finger foods.


  • 1 kg (2 lb) lamb with quite a bit of fat, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1


The meat should be minced twice if possible, or turned to a paste in a food processor. Mix all the ingredients together and knead well with your hands to a soft, pasty texture. Roll into small walnut-sized balls. Fry in oil, in a few batches, turning them so that they are well browned all over but still moist and juicy.

Serve hot or cold.
