Remove gristle from lamb and grind it. Knead it with the remaining ingredients except the egg and oil for frying. Add the raw egg and knead it again until all the ingredients are enveloped with the egg. Make lamb patties the size of a fist or smaller.

Heat a frying pan. Add oil for frying. When hot fry the patties until browned on both sides.

Make a sauce with the ingredients listed. Pour it over some of the patties but not all. As they are just as good without the sauce.
