• 500 gr minced beef
  • ½ cup glutinous rice
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 eggs, one separated
  • 1 medium-sized grated onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
  • 1 ½ lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon of flour
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1:

Put the mince with rice, olive oil, onion, parsley, 1 tablespoon of dill, salt, pepper and egg white and mix until it becomes homogeneous.

Step 2:

Allow the mixture to rest for about 20 minutes and then squeeze it into small round balls (about 25).

Boil cups of salt water in a cup on medium heat and then pour in the yuvarlakia.
