About this recipe:
Most meatball recipes I have tried didn't give me the flavour that I wanted. However, I came across a recipe for kebabs and decided to turn them into meatballs instead.
Makes: 25 spicy meatballs
450g minced lamb or beef
2 slices of bread, finely crumbled
2 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
2 to 3 fresh chillies, chopped
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 pinch each ground cinnamon, turmeric and ground cardamom
salt and ground pepper
- Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
- Shape the mixture into small balls, using wet hands, and place them on an oven tray.
- Place them in the oven for about 35 to 40 minutes. Cut one meatball in half to check that they have cooked through and are no longer pink in the centre.
Brown off the meatballs in a frying pan and then cook in pasta sauce to make spaghetti and spicy meatballs.
My son thought they were the best meatballs he's tasted!
