For the sauce:

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 large garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
½ pound tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 dried red chile
1 quart water

Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
For the kaftas (meatballs):

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 egg yolk
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
teaspoon ground nutmeg
teaspoon freshly ground allspice berries
For the rice:
1 cup long grain rice
½ cup water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

Directions:(Rice Pilaf With Meatballs)

 

 

Prepare the sauce: In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, then cook, stirring, the onion until light golden, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, reduce the heat to medium and cook 1 minute while stirring constantly. Add the carrot, flour, tomatoes, tomato paste, chile and water. Stir well and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to medium-low and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Reduce to low, cover and simmer 30 minutes. Remove from heat and pass through a food mill or sieve. Remove 1 cup sauce for the rice and reserve the remaining sauce in a skillet that can hold all the meatballs.
Preheat the broiler.
Prepare the meatballs: In a bowl, mix the ground lamb, flour, egg yolk, salt, cinnamon, white pepper, nutmeg and allspice until well blended. Divide into small walnut-sized meatballs. Arrange them on a broiling tray and broil until golden brown and sizzling, 5 minutes. Remove the meatballs and transfer to the reserved sauce in the skillet and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until bubbling furiously, 10 minutes. Uncover and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Combine the sauce reserved for the rice and the ½ cup water in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the rice, bring again to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and stir in the salt. Cover, reduce to low and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, without stirring or lifting the cover, 12 to 15 minutes. Arrange the rice on a serving platter and sprinkle with parsley and serve the meatballs separately.
