Tried a recipe from a magazine which turned out to be delicious:

My version:

And most important of all; I have finished two knitting projects.One I couldn’t photograph yet but I could photograph the toddler cardigan.

Voila !

I was hoping to read a bit after posting but I am too sleepy now. So good night!

meatballs( kofte )

Posted in cooking at 8:41 am by edascrochetroom

Last week-end i had some nostalgia and decided to make the meatballs my mom used to make for us when we were kids.


1kg ground beef

1 kg potatoes

2 large onions

2 slices of bread crumbs


1 egg


First,you grate potatoes and onion and add them to the meat.Add bread crumbs , egg, chopped parsley, salt and pepper.Mix them very well.The trick is here:the ingredients must be mixed very well.

Then you take wallnut sized amounts ( i prefer bigger) and roll them into shape.

(Sorry about the pictures being a bit blurry ; i have taken them with my mobile!)

Then fry them in sunflower oil or maize oil.

Goes very well with yoghurt,salad and potato fries. Bon apetit.
