Ingredients

Herbed ball
1 pound ground beef
1 ½ cups rice
¼ teaspoon turmeric
ground
*
¼ teaspoon black pepper
*
2 tablespoons tarragon leaves
2 bunch parsley leaves
chopped
1 cup leeks
chopped
½ cup dill weed
fresh
*
½ cup onions
chopped
Broth
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium onions
sliced
¼ teaspoon turmeric
ground
*
1 cup tomatoes
chopped
1 teaspoon salt
5 cups water
1 cup green peas

Directions

Mix all the meatball ingredients together and roll into balls, 2½ inches in diameter, firmly packed.

Refrigerate them for 1 hour.

To make the broth, heat the oil in a pan or soup kettle, add the onions and turmeric, and stir-fry over moderate heat until light brown, about 3 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and salt and stir-fry for 2 minutes more.

Add the water and bring to a boil.

Moisten your hands with cold water.

Take each herbed ball and roll it firmly; add the balls to the broth very carefully, one at a one, so that they do not not fall apart.

The water should just cover the balls.

Cover the pan and cook over moderately low heat, without stirring, for 45 minutes.

Add the green peas and cook for 10 minutes more.

The broth will reduce somewhat, the balls swell considerably due to the expansion of the rice.

Serve warm -- with the meatballs in the broth.
