Meatballs served with "arabic" style flatbread. Another rainy august day experiment.
1. Make a tomato sauce; onion/ garlic/ thyme/ oregano/ fresh tomatoes/ vinegar/ chili/ lots of fresh basil. Push through a sieve when done.
2. Bread; I used... flour tortillas, shredded. Olive oil/ sumac/ thyme/ fleur de sel (yes, za'atar without the sesamseeds). Bake in the oven at 180°C. Let cool entirely before consumption!! Comes out nice and crispy when cooled! Of course you can use all kinds of oriental bread as well.
3. Meatballs; 50/50 pork and veal/ same amount lean beef/ 1 egg/ panko/ chili/ parmezan/ chives (a lot!). Fry the meatballs in a pan with oil. When almost done, add sieved tomato sauce and let simmer until done. I cut one meatball to show how it looks inside.
4. Homemade yoghurt, no seasoning at all/ iceberg salad. Slices of scallion (green part only!); never throw that away, plenty taste.
Looks fantastic, tastes delicious! Easy to make. The yoghurt is a nice and fresh touch, tones down the chili; something to remember.
"Bread" ready to go in the oven. Tortilla shredded, painted with oil, sprinkled with sumac, thyme, fleur de sel.
