Begin to cook
- Minced meat, chosen for your taste, is put in a bowl. After that don’t forget to add salt and spices to taste (we like zira, black and red ground pepper).
- A small onion is cut into as small parts as it is possible. And then we add them into minced meat. Everything is mixed well and the minced meat is beaten a bit: so it will be more dense and it is better to keep the shape.
- Here is a small tip for you. If you have dry minced meat with a low fat content (beef or chicken one), add an egg and a little semolina.

- In a frying pan, warm up a small amount of vegetable oil, lay out all the meatballs and fry them from all sides to a ruddy crust appearance.
- Then put all the vegetables into the frying pan and fry them a bit.
- While vegetables are being fried, carefully wash the rice in several waters, until the water becomes clear.
