Shish Barak

Almost every culture in the world has their version of a dumpling and the Middle East has its Shish Barak. These little plump dumplings are filled with minced meat and baked before mixed with a tangy yogurt sauce. The result is crisp, juicy meat puffs that are so good on their own, and even better with tart yogurt. Make a bunch of them and freeze so that all you need to do is to get them warm and toasty (in minutes!) It's that easy. Now, serve with a side of rice and you'll have yourself a hearty start to your pre-dawn meal.
