Kofte (meatball) ingredients:
~100 g medium ground beef

1/3 cup flour, all purpose
A bunch of baby spinach, washed, drained, if you like cut in medium-sized pieces
1-2 spring onions, chopped
1 tbsp rice, rinsed
1 medium-sized tomato, peeled, diced
1 tsp red pepper paste
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup yogurt, plain

Knead all the kofte ingredients, make little balls (larger than hazelnuts) and flour them all. Heat the oil and lightly fry in a medium-sized pot.
Then add the red pepper paste, rice, tomato, spinach and butter. Cover and cook until the rice is done.
Serve with Garlic-Yogurt Sauce on the side.
