For the meat balls themselves:



  1. Marinate meat with above ingredients, overnight or for a few hours.
  2. Form the balls; make them small for appetizers.

For the sauce:



  1. Fry peppercorns, cinnamon and cardamom in the oil.
  2. Gently place meatballs in the pan. Cover for 5-8 minutes, and then turn over.
  3. When both sides are sautéed, add enough water to cover meatballs.
  4. To thicken sauce, make several beurre manie “balls” by kneading the flour and butter together. Whisk this into the sauce.
  5. When meat is cooked, add the yogurt, mixing carefully to avoid clumps. Let simmer for 10 minutes.

Estimated prep time:

40 minutes to prep, several hours or overnight to marinate.
Yield: 4 servings
