I have been trying to duplicate a dish from my favorite Indian restaurant in Tucson, AZ. This is not it, close but not yet. It is, however, extremely tasty!

Made this for dinner last night and it was excellent! I made it exactly as suggested with no substitutions and it was delicious - and easy! Definitely a keeper!

  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and start browning the meatballs.
  3. Slice the peppers and onion thinly and add to the browning meatballs. Shake the pan or stir every so often to brown the meatballs all over.

  5. Stir again and cover with a lid, simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Remove lid, stir in the spinach and cilantro and simmer 5 minutes.
  7. Serve with steamed basmati rice.
