So here`s another one for you it`s an algerian dish called k`babh  this dish can be made with either chicken or meat balls so today i went with mince balls .... it is a very simple dish and very tasty ... to tell the truth it had been a while since i made it as alot of time i leave out the parsley and egg  but this time i went to whole way

to getting this dish right  you must be careful that their isnt too much sauce or too little sauce  and as long as you can get that then the dish speaks for it`s self ... believe me it took me a long time to get  it right ... that now my dh nephew  says i cook better than his mum and he love to eat what i make


mince meat (as much or as little as you like)
a handful of rice ( this also depends on the amount of mince )
breadcrumbs (optional )
1 egg
black pepper


1 onion
handful of chick peas
black pepper

chips(fried potatoes)


 Dice up onion small
add some oil and saute on a low heat
the add chickpeas (only if they are form the ones you saok over night) if from a tin then have way through the cooking process
add spices and continue
then add water litle by little

at this stage you can make up you mince meat ball by placing all ingredients into a bowl and mix well then form balls

after about 30 mins of cooking the sauce add the balls and if needed add so more water and continue until chick peas are soft and turn off

 fry your potatoes and when cooked add to sauce this stage turn back on the heat  to a medium flame add chopped parsley and the from a bowl add 3 eggs that have been beaten  ... pour over the top and just place the spoon in different parts  of the pot to allow the eggs to fill up the area and allow to simmer for a few mins then turn off the heat and leave it for a few mins to allow it to rest

so you see simple and tasty ... give it a try i`m sure you will like it and if you dont like eggs just leave it out will still make a tasty dish
