  • Meatballs:
    Apart from the flour and the vegetable oil, mix all the other ingredients together well. Make medium-size balls from the mixture.
  • Roll the balls in flour and then deep fry them for 15 minutes.
  • Sauce:
    In a heavy-bottomed pan, heat the oil, then add the flour and stir well for 3 minutes. Add 1 litre water and mix well.
  • Add the meatballs and simmer for 30 minutes, until the sauce is slightly thick. Beat the egg yolk thoroughly.
  • Add the lemon juice to the egg and keep beating. Add 5-6 tablespoons of the sauce to the egg and lemon mixture and stir well.
  • Add this mixture to the meatballs in the sauce, shake the pan and remove from the heat.
  • Serve with a sprinkling of pepper and fresh mint on top.
