    Mirj's Note:

    These meatballs have a very Middle Eastern flavor. To make these suitable for Passover, just substitute matzah meal for the bread crumbs.

      Well, I looked at the ingredients and thought "That doesn't seem like enough cumin to be able to taste it" but then I quickly came to my senses and prepared the recipe verbatim because I've learned not to fool with Mirjam's recipes. And I'm glad I did, because the flavour was just right. Served them with dressed pasta and a light salad. Wunderbar!

      Very flavourful. I added piri-piri seasoning to the sauce to give it a little bit of kick,
