Four cups of Plain Yogurt
Half cup of Rice
One cup of cold water
Four cups of hot water

How to Prepare the Dumplings:
Prepare the dough by placing the flour, vegetable oil, salt and warm water in a pot and mix all together.
Kneed the mixture to form a ball of dough.
Using a saucepan, fry the onion until it is golden yellow then add the ground beef and cook until brown.
Add a dash of salt & pepper to the ground beef and stir until well cooked.
Take a small piece of the dough.
Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough (put some flour on the rolling pin and surface so the dough does not stick) and flatten into a round shape.
Put one teaspoon of the meat in the dough and roll it into a half-circle shape and press well on the edges to close, then bring the far ends together and press well till they get stuck together (as shown in the picture).
Deep fry the meat dumplings until golden brown.
How to Prepare the Yogurt Dip:
Mix the yogurt with the rice, the egg, and the cold water until all are blended well.
Put the mixture in a large pot and cook on medium heat while stirring continuously until it starts to boil.
For flavoring the yogurt sauce, use a sauce pan to heat two tablespoons of olive oil.
Add one tablespoon of the ground mint and the diced garlic to the vegetable oil and stir until the garlic is light brown.
When the yogurt sauce and the rice are all cooked, turn off the flame and flavor it with garlic, mint and vegetable oil.
Let it sit for one minute then serve.
