I used to be a bit overwhelmed by the amount of spices needed to cook a curry, and with a 3 1/2-year-old and a 1-year-old, I’m really time poor. I want easy, everyday dishes, but I certainly don’t want to compromise on taste. This is a great weekday family curry recipe for those with busy lives.
1. In a large bowl, add the mince, cumin, ginger and salt, and using clean hands, mix until combined. With wet hands to prevent sticking, roll into tablespoon-sized balls.
2. In a large frying pan, on a medium heat, melt the butter and brown the meatballs, turning for 2-3 minutes. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Set aside.
3. Using the same pan (add more butter if needed), fry the onion and the garlic until soft.
4. Add the Madras paste, mix through and fry for a further minute. Add the water and stir through.
5. Add the tomato paste, stir, bring sauce back to the boil, then simmer, covered, for 10 minutes until thickened.
6. Drop the meatballs into the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
7. Serve on rice and/or with roti, scatter coriander and add a dollop of natural yoghurt or store-bought raita.
1. You can make most of this curry ahead of time, just hold back dropping the browned meatballs into the sauce until five minutes before serving.
2. You could add some greens to the dish, Add frozen peas or spinach into the sauce 5 minutes before serving.
3. Chicken mince will also work well with the flavours of this dish.
4. This curry sauce freezes well.
Put a Greek spin on your burgers! Lamb burgers are lovely and luscious and perfect with creamy, tangy, salty Feta & Olive Burger Sauce.
The burgers can be cooked on the stove top or on the outdoor grill.
Depending on your appetite, this recipe makes 4 to 6 burgers.
