Mix pork, cloves, onion, ground cinnamon, mustard powder, salt and pepper in a bowl; shape in small meatballs. Sprinkle the meatballs with some of the toasted flour.
Melt butter in a saucepan; add meatballs and cook until browned. Stir in water; cover and let simmer for 1 hour.
To thicken the sauce, dissolve toasted flour in a little bit of cold water; add gradually to stew, stirring until desired thickness is achieved.
