Spicy Lamb Meatballs

I tried this yesterday for lunch and it turned out nice. Now that I have it here, I can always come back and try it again.

For the meatballs:

About 500g of ground lamb
3 green chilies roughly chopped – add to remove to taste
1 garlic clove chopped
1 small piece of ginger chopped
2 teaspoons of cumin powder
1 egg yolk
Salt and pepper to taste
3 medium sized mushrooms – cut thinly
handful chopped fresh coriander
1 tablespoon of oyster sauce

Mix all the above really well until mixture binds together. Make them into about 12 medium sized balls and bake for 30 minutes. Keep aside.


For the sauce:

1 tablespoon of oil
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 onion chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
1 inch piece ginger root minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
handful of chopped coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 can of peeled tomatoes
2 fresh tomatoes
Half a glass of water

Fry cumin seeds in the oil for a minute then add garlic, onions and ginger fry 5 more minutes. Combine with rest of the sauce ingredients. Add water and let it simmer for 3 minutes. Add the meatballs and leave for another 5 minutes. And it’s done ( ;

Can be served with rice or spaghetti.
