In a large bowl, mix together the minced lamb, onion, garlic, sour cherries, pine nuts, paprika, allspice and cumin. Add the egg white and mix again. Stir in the chopped fresh herbs and season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Using your hands, shape the mixture into golf ball-sized balls.
Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the meatballs over a medium heat a few at a time, turning occasionally, for ten minutes, or until golden-brown on all sides and completely cooked through.
