Meatballs in Yogurt Sauce Recipe

Meatballs in Yogurt Sauce Recipes

Ingredients :

750g minced beef

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

1/2 tsp ground cardamom

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tbsp olive oil

Yogurt Sauce:

2 cups plain yogurt

1 tbsp cornflour dissolved in 1 tbsp water

2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves

1 tsp cumin seeds

Method :

Combine mince, onion, dill, cardamom and cumin in a medium bowl. Shape tablespoons of the mixture into balls. Heat oil in heavy based pan; add meatballs. Cook over medium-high heat 5-10 minutes, turning frequently to brown all sides. Drain on absorbent paper and set aside. To make yogurt sauce: Place yogurt and cornflour mixture in a large pan and whisk until smooth. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until yogurt begins to thicken. The addition of the cornflour mixture will prevent yogurt curdling. Add meatballs to yogurt sauce and simmer for a further 5 minutes or until heated through. Stir in coriander and cumin seeds. Serve meatballs with an onion salad or in warmed pita bread.

Note: These meatballs can also be made with lean minced lamb. In this case, replace the coriander leaves in yogurt sauce with fresh mint.
