Ingredients

  • 300 grams of minced meat

  • 1 shallot

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tbsp breadcrumbs

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 1 tbsp mint

  • 1 tbsp parsley

  • pepper and salt

  • Tzatziki:
  • 1 small cucumber

  • 300 ml Greek yogurt

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 1 tbsp dill

  • salt and pepper

Directions

  • Make the tzatziki first. Peel the cucumber and grate it. Place the grated cucumber in a sieve and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Chop the garlic and dill finely. Put the cucumber, yogurt, garlic, dill and some salt and pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate the tzatziki for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Chop the garlic, mint and parsley finely. Put all the ingredients for the keftedes in a bowl and knead together. If the mincemeat mixture is still a bit wet, add a third tbsp of the breadcrumbs.
  • Form small balls, about 4 cm. Fry the meatballs in a pan with a dash of oil or butter. Turn them on regularly and bake them for about 10 min.
  • Serve the keftedes with the homemade tzatziki.
