  1. Step 1

    Melt the butter in a frying pan over a low-medium heat. Once melted, fry the onion and garlic for 4-5 mins until the onion is translucent. Add the walnuts and cook for 1 min until golden, then add the baharat and fry for another minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Step 2

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Pour the oil into a large baking tray and transfer to the oven to get hot. Put the onion mixture and all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Use your hands to squash everything together, working it well to combine. Using a small frying pan, fry a small piece of stuffing in a little oil, taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Once satisfied, roll the mixture into 24 balls.
  3. Step 3

    Add the balls to the hot fat in the baking tray, gently toss in the oil and then roast for 20-25 mins or until cooked through and crisp and golden on the outside.
