For the Sauce

  1. In a bowl put the yogurt, lemon zest, 1 tbsp. Olive oil, mint, salt, pepper, and stir.

  2. Add the ouzo, mix well, and set aside.

  3. Yogurt must be drained to absorb moisture from other ingredients.

For the Meatballs

  1. In a bowl of water, put the bread to soak.

  2. Squeeze well with your hands so that all the water is gone and transfer to another bowl.

  3. Add the minced pork and beef, the eggs, the chopped parsley, the oregano, the chopped garlic, the chopped onion, the chopped mint, the cumin, the pepper, the salt, 3 Tbsp olive oil, stir well until the ingredients are homogeneous.

  4. It is important to salt the minced meat because you can not add salt after frying.

  5. Put in the fridge for 1 hour, covered with a transparent film.

  6. Place a pan with sunflower oil on medium to high heat to burn. We want the sunflower oil to cover the meatballs when they are fried.

  7. Form into 20 balls (20-25 g each) and pass them through the flour.

  8. Make sure the extra flour is removed and put in two portions in the pan with the hot sunflower oil.
