Meatball; delicious Persian food

Carrot meatballs also known as Kermanshahi meatballs are one of the various types of meatballs cooked in Iran and have been classified among the most delicious and nutritious ones.

Iran (IMNA) - The food is originally made in Kermanshah, a city in western Iran with tasty local foods.


Knead the minced meat in a bowl with some salt. Then add carrot, onion, egg, black pepper and turmeric, and knead the mixture again, so that it becomes sticky. Finally, add parsley and knead it again. Sauté the walnut, barberry and sultanas in some butter and oil for one to two minutes.

Grease the palm of your hand with some oil. Take some of the mixture (the size of a tangerine) and spread it on your palm. Put some walnut in the middle of it and then roll it into a meatball again. Put the meatballs, one by one, into the casserole containing the boiling sauce, so that the meatballs are completely covered by it. After ten minutes, turn down the heat, put the casserole lid back on, and leave the mixture on the heat for 30 minutes, so that meatballs are cooked and the sauce gets thick. Then take the meatballs out of the dish and serve them with the sauce.
