  1. Knead the rice flour with a little water. After kneading a certain amount, add ground beef and keep kneading.
  2. Add salt, pepper, paprika. Knead and check the consistency. If the meatballs do not disperse when you turn them into tiny balls, the consistency is appropriate.
  3. Cook the cubed lamb meat in the pot with water.
  4. After cooking the meat, add some broth to the yogurt and warm it. Then slowly add this mix to the meat, while stirring and cook it. Bring it to a boil.
  5. Make the meatballs in the size of chickpeas. Add the tiny rounded meatballs and the chickpeas to the soup and cook without mixing too much. Check the salt.
  6. When the meatballs are cooked, turn off the bottom of the stove.
  7. Melt the butter in a separate pan, add mint and fry the mint. Pour it over the soup.
