    Julesong's Note:

    Simple, unusual, and tasty! You can make these into balls, as an appetizer, or into patties as part of a meal. As a main course, it can serve 2. This a tried-and-true recipe, for all it sounds somewhat unusal. I really like this dish. Very yummy!

      My husband made these for dinner tonight - yum! The yogurt-chutney sauce with them was perfect. :)

      These are easy to make and a very nice change of pace from regular meatballs. We've had them both as a main dish and as appetizers. Well received! The dipping sauce is good.
