|400 g||minced meat (mixed lamb and beef)|
|1 tsp||ground cumin|
|Turkish bread for serving|

Add minced meat to a bowl and season with salt. Knead to combine and refrigerate for approx. 1 – 2 hrs.
Pre-heat oven to 180°C/355°F. Peel and halve onions crosswise, then remove the inner cores to allow room for the meat. Use your hands to form walnut-sized balls out of the minced meat. Add each meatball to a halved onion and transfer them to a baking dish. Bake for approx. 35 min. or until browned.
Grate cucumbers and ginger, then add to a sieve and press out as much liquid as possible over a bowl. Toss liquids and transfer cucumbers and ginger to a clean bowl. Add yogurt, ground cumin, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
