This is such an amazing recipe. It is a refreshing twist on a normal curry and it is much better for you. You could also use turkey mince instead which would be even healthier. The meatballs are bursting with Indian flavors. These would be a great party food as well because the meatballs are not crumbly and would be great to serve with some tooth picks. There is a few different steps in this recipe but they are all very straight forward, so don’t fret.
