How to make it

  • Preheat broiler.
  • Combine the lamb, turkey, chickpea puree, egg, matzo meal, salt and pepper flakes.
  • Mix well by hand (mixture should be loose and moist so that it can best absorb the sauce).
  • Shape the meat mixture into walnut-size balls and place on a baking sheet.
  • Broil 8 minutes, turning balls ½ way through.
  • Combine the tomato paste, tamarind concentrate, lemon juice, salt, and 1 cup water in a large saucepan over medium heat. Mix well.
  • Add the meatballs and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

    This recipe looks delish! Unfortunately, I cannot eat tamarind because I am allergic to it. When I make these meatballs I will use either Hoisin sauce or a sweet and sour mixture as a replacement/substitute. Thank you for this recipe!
