Delicious little morsels! I did not feel like pulling out the food processor, so I grated the onion and then mixed everything together with my hands. Could not find the allspice, but they were nicely spicy without it. I mixed yogurt with chopped scallion and a little garlic, and stuffed the meatballs into a pita with some sliced cucumbers. I think these would also be nice over a saffron rice with a yogurt sauce.
