Qady Qooda (Meatballs in Batter)



  • 3/4 pound ground meat
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoon rice
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • Oil (for frying)


  1. Mix the meat, garlic, rice, black pepper and salt in a bowl. Shape into balls half the size of an egg; put in a pan with a little water and cook over medium heat until ready.
  2. Mix the flour with the baking powder, yeast, eggs and a little water to form a dough-like batter. Set aside to rise for at least two hours. (Alternative: use pancake mix to make the batter.)
  3. Coat the balls in batter; fry in very hot oil and serve hot.

Serves 3 to 4.
