baby carrot
1/3 cup finely chopped tomato
1/2 tsp black pepper

juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp flour
1/4 cup milk, salt,
thyme, red pepper

(You can add egg yolks and serve the eksili köfte with sprinkled red pepper in melted butter sauce. This recipe is for traditional meatball in sour sauce)

In a large bowl, put all the ingredients together and knead with hands. Make little balls. Meanwhile bring 4 cups of water to boil in a pot. Put the köftes(meatballs) into the pot gently. Stir ocassionaly. Add potato cubes and carrots. Cook untill rice soft.
