1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1 garlic clove, crushed and chopped
1/2 fresh coriander, finely chopped (or use parsley)
pita bread (you can also use wraps or flatbread)

Place all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl with some cracked pepper. Using clean hands, mix until well combined. Roll into walnut-sized balls.
Heat a little oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat.
Add half the meatballs, cook for a couple of minutes then turn gently using tongs, being careful not to break them up.
Cook for another 7-10 minutes, turning to brown all over until cooked through.
Transfer to a warmed plate, cover with foil and repeat with the remaining meatballs.
