1 tab dry mint

1 tab finely chopped fresh mint

1 tab finely chopped fresh oregano

30ml white wine vinegar

2 tabs olive oil

A little cold water – for mixing

Salt and  pepper to taste

Put the onion and garlic in a food processor, and chop well. Alternatively, grate the onion and crush the garlic.

In a large bowl put the mince, breadcrumbs, all the herbs, olive oil, vinegar and seasoning. Knead well for about 10 minutes – if necessary, add a little water. The mixture should be a thick paste.

If possible, leave the mixture to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
