Mititei (Romanian pronunciation: [mitiˈtej]) or mici (pronounced [mit͡ʃʲ], both Romanian words meaning "small ones") is a traditional Romanian dish of grilled ground meat rolls made from a mixture of beef, lamb and pork with spices, such as garlic, black pepper, thyme, coriander, anise, savory, and sometimes a touch of paprika. Sodium bicarbonate and broth or water are also added to the mixture. It is similar to Ćevapi.[1]

It is often served with french fries, mustard and murături (Romanian way to make veggies in vinegar, usually pickles, but it can also be capsicum, cabbage, cauliflower or a mix of all of this together).
