Ingredients: (8 servings)
one kg of potatoes
500 grams (1 lb) ground beef or lamb
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup of cooking oil
3-4 teaspoons of tomato paste
2 tomatoes (optional)
1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
1/3 cup mint, finely chopped
1/2 cup spring onions, finely chopped
1/3 cup garlic chives, finely chopped
1/3 cup tarragon, finely chopped (optional)
Fry onions in cooking oil over medium heat until golden. Add ground meat and fry
further until meat changes color. Add 1/2 cup water, salt, pepper and tomato paste. Mix
and cook further until water boils off. Fry prepared vegetables in cooking oil over medium
heat until wilted. Mix well meat and vegetables.
Cook potatoes in water, then peel and mash them. Add raw eggs, salt and black pepper,
and mix well.
Take a handful of potato-mix and shape it into a ball, then create a hole in the middle
and fill with the meat-mix. Cover with some more potato-mix and shape into a disc. Repeat
until both mixes are used up. Fry both sides of the discs in cooking oil over medium heat
until golden. Can be served with slices of tomatos and bits of parsley.
