Mix all the ingredients until well combined. Roll into walnut-sized balls.

Heat the oil and add the meatballs, do not overcrowd the pan.

Cook for 10 minutes, turn gently and occasionally until brown and cooked.

Transfer to a plate with baking paper to soak the extra oil out.

Serve with rice, noodles, salad, wraps or flatbreads.


The meatballs can be prepared with an air-fryer, 165 °C for 10 minutes, then 180 °C for another 5 minutes to enhance the appearance of the meatball.

Other types of mince can be used as lamb mince substitute.
