Step 3

Place the barley in a large bowl. Add the tomato, cucumber, parsley and mint. Toss to combine.

Step 4

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, turning occasionally, for 10 mins or until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside for 5 mins to rest.

Step 5

To make the dill yoghurt sauce, blend the yoghurt, mint, dill and lemon juice in a blender until smooth. Season.
