Instructions

    Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and lightly coat with nonstick spray. Preheat the oven to 400F [200C].

    In a large bowl, gently but thoroughly mix together the lamb, egg, prune bits, garlic, salt, paprika, cumin, chile flakes, cilantro, and mint. Add the breadcrumbs and gently mix until incorporated. Roll into 16 (4 cm / 1 1/2-inch) balls. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops have browned and are cooked through. (If the meatballs are cooked but not brown, broil the meatballs for 1-2 minutes to caramelize the tops.)

    Put yogurt in a bowl. In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add curry powder and turn off heat. Swirl pan, then pour directly over yogurt. Stir in salt and lime juice.

    To serve, spoon yogurt onto a platter and put meatballs on top. Sprinkle tomatoes and extra cilantro and mint on top. Serve with lavash.
