- 500 grams (1.1 pounds) mince
- An onion
- A clove of garlic
- 3-4 tablespoons bread crumbs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 egg
- A pinch salt
- A pinch mitmita
Be ready! This will be a different, literally “mixed” and very “hot” recipe! First of all, I would like to thank to RawSpiceBar for sending me a sample of the spice named mitmita from Ethiopia. By the way, I want to give some information about RawSpiceBar and mitmita. RawSpiceBar is an organization and every month, they bring different spice mixs together and send it to your address. And mitmita is an insanely hot spice mix. It consists of different peppers and spices. It’s so hot that your tongue will be burnt in every sense of the word even if you touch it with your tongue. So, this is a very special hot spice mix for its lovers. And this recipe will be different as I said before, since you’ll find both Turkish and Ethiopian “elements” in it. Are you ready? So, let’s go on with the recipe!
A kneading pot
Take the mince, chopped or grated onion and grated garlic into the pot. Then add the egg and mix.
Knead by adding the mitmita, bread crumbs and salt. Knead for a while and pour olive oil and knead again well.
Set the mix aside in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then take it from the fridge and take walnut sized pieces, roll them on your palm and put them onto the tray with grased paper on it.
Bake until their tops turn red in the oven set and preheated to 200 °C (390 °F).
