Gondi – meatballs made from hummus and chicken meat

In a large and deep saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the seeds and fry over medium heat on all sides for about 10 minutes. Then we also put the onion, carrot, lime, parsley (in a bundle tied with a thread), 10-12 peas of black pepper, turmeric and a teaspoon of salt. Pour in one and a half liters of water and bring to a boil. On low heat, cook under the lid for about 1 hour. The finished broth is filtered through cheesecloth. We won’t need any more bones and vegetables. Lime is returned to the saucepan.
Put all the ingredients for the gondi in a bowl and mix well with your hands soaked in water. We form 16 balls from the resulting minced meat (the weight of one ball is about 1.06 oz).
Bring the broth to a low boil and add the beans here. Cook under a barely opened lid for about 20 minutes. Then gently drop the gondi into the broth and cook for the next half hour. Remove the lid and continue to cook for another 15 minutes, until the soup becomes fragrant and thick (during cooking and if necessary, you can add a little water).
We spread the gondi on plates and pour the broth with beans. Sprinkle with lime juice and garnish with coriander leaves. Bon Appetit!
