    Sackville's Note:

    I learned to make this at a Turkish cooking class. Serve it with a variety of Middle Eastern dishes and feel free to adjust the seasonings to your taste. What I've given is an absolute minimum, but when I make the meatballs I normally throw in extra cumin and sometimes chilli flakes. You can also make this with minced beef.

      These are very tasty. I used 750g ground beef which I had on hand, and therefore reduced the bulgar wheat (bourghal) to 1/2 cup. I also used rounded tsp of the spices instead of level. I served these with 1/2 cup Greek Yoghurt, through which I mixed 2 tablespoons finely chopped mint, 1/2 Lebanese cucumber, chopped into small pieces, and 2 tsp lemon juice.

      Turkish cuisine is very sophisticated and uses a lot of spices. However, these meatballs are not what is typically cooked, at least where I grew up. When I think of meatballs, I think of meat, bread crumbs, cumin, black pepper, salt, lots of freshly chopped parsley and onions. But, there are many regional variations to many dishes.
