How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 200C/ 392F
  • Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  • Shape into 16-20 small meatballs.
  • Heat the oil and fry the meatballs for 5-10 minutes. When browned, remove from heat and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Place in an oven proof dish, and set aside.
  • Roughly chop the paprika and onion.
  • In a pan deep enough to hold a fair amount of liquid, heat the (sauce) oil over a medium heat.
  • Slowly fry the chopped paprika and onion until soft.
  • Add chilli, cumin, coriander and garlic, and fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Pour sauce over the meatballs and cook in the middle of the oven at 200C/ 392F for 20 minutes.
  • Serve with pasta.
  • .
  • If served with a nice salad and maybe a dessert to follow, it serves 4. If you like these meatballs (read: are really greedy like us), you may find the recipe only serves 2.
  • I have never tried freezing them, but I often serve them at informal dinner parties; one of their biggest advantages is the possibility for advance preparation, and simply boiling some pasta and popping the dish of meatballs in the oven when the guests arrive.
