Cut the lid of a pumpkin. Take out the pumpkin seeds. The inner walls of the pumpkin rubbed with cut garlic, salt, butter. The outer wall daubed with olive oil. Pumpkin in a pot pour 1 Cup of milk, 1tbsp.l. sugar, 2 leaf Lavrushka, 3 peas of black pepper, nutmeg. Pumpkin pot and the lid put on the pan, there pour 1/2 Cup of water in the oven, preheated to 180 degrees for an hour.
Prepare the millet. Chopped in small pieces onions and grated on a fine grater carrots. Simmer in butter 5 minutes on low heat. Separately Pshenko we scald 1 Cup of boiled milk. After a minute add the onions and carrots, pour the last glass of hot milk. Salt. Bring to readiness. After 15-20 minutes the porridge is ready.
Prepare stuffing. Beef scrolled through a meat grinder, add 1 egg, Khmeli-suneli, salt. Mix well, beats. Prepare balls "surprise". 150 grams of pumpkin, which we got when cleaning the pumpkin, grind in a blender. Add the breadcrumbs, flour, salt. Turn the balls about the size of olives.
Put the ground beef in the shape of circles. Do this with wet hands so convenient. The top slice of millet, and it is a little smaller in size. And in the middle of our surprise - the pumpkin ball.
Now sculpt. In the left hand hold the workpiece, the right hand pulling the stuffing into a ball. Dip them in flour, put in the steamer.
I have left balls a surprise. I have planirovala in sour cream with dill. And put in a steamer on the upper tier, as they cook faster than beef meatballs. Also left Pshenko. From it I made the yellow balls.
Beef meatballs and balls in dill are cooked in the steamer for 30 minutes. If you put the balls shovchik up as you cook, it will open and there will be seen the yellow millet. If shovchik down - the ball will not be disclosed. I put different. Before you put the pumpkin on a dish, you need to remove milk fat. In the empty pot we put our meatballs and balls. Decorate with cilantro and dill. To each meatball fasten a leaf Lavrushka.
Here is the portion. With a "Bright mood" You! Bon appetit!
