Ingredients: (4 servings)
500 grams of potatoes
250 grams ground lamb or beef
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2-3 teaspoons of tomato paste
1 tomato (optional)
1/3 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.
