Meatballs in Sour Sauce (Eksili Kofte)

1 cup yogurt
1 Tbsp flour, heaping
1 egg
5-6 cups cold water
½ lemon’s juice
1 Tbsp salt to taste
½ tsp dried mint
2+2 Tbsp canola oil
½ tsp paprika

For the meatballs:
~ ½ lb ground meat
¼ cup rice
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp dried mint
½ tsp salt to taste

In a bowl, mix all the meatball ingredients using your hands. Grab smaller pieces than walnuts and make small meatballs. Set aside.
Place 2 Tbsp canola oil and flour in a pot. Then, sauté over medium heat till flour turns pinkish. Stir in cold water. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add meatballs and salt. Cover the lid halfway and cook for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix yogurt, lemon juice and egg. Pour two ladles of hot soup into this mixture stirring constantly. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
In a small frying pan sizzle the remaining canola oil and stir in dried mint and paprika. Once you smell the nice combination of mint and paprika turn the heat off.
Drizzle the mixture over the soup and serve hot.
ENJOY
