    Daydream's Note:

    A very tasty meatball curry which my family enjoyed. I really like how you don't need to brown the meatballs before adding them to the gravy - so quick and easy. You can use store-bought Malaysian Curry Powder, or make your own (which is more fun to do if you have the time). I served this with rice and stir-fried vegetables.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare all ingredients before commencing to cook.
    2. 2
      In a medium-large bowl, combine the beef, breadcrumbs, egg, chopped spring onion and cilantro, with salt and pepper to taste, and place to one side.
    3. 3
      Grind onion, garlic and ginger to a paste with a stick blender or in a small food processor.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, combine Malaysian curry powder, chili powder, ground cloves and a little water, to make a paste.
    5. 5
      Heat the oil over a medium-high flame in a wok, add onion paste, and stir-fry for about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add the curry paste, star anise, cloves, curry leaves, reduce heat to medium, and stir fry until quite toasted and the oil starts to ooze out: this can take 5 – 10 minutes, but be careful not to burn.
    7. 7
      Add coconut milk and bring slowly to the boil.
    8. 8
      While curry liquid is boiling start making and dropping in bite sized meatballs - stop occasionally and stir gently.
    9. 9
      When all meatballs have been added, add tomato paste and salt to taste.
    10. 10
      Simmer, covered, on medium heat for 10 minutes, adding a little extra water as necessary.
    11. 11
      Add potato and simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, again adding a little water if necessary.
    12. 12
      Serve with bread, roti chani, roti jala or steamed rice.

      Not bad. used lean ground sirloin which did not hold up well to the meatball form, but this still came out as a great beef curry. I also excluded the anise and substituted 2 bay leaves for the curry leaves. Definitely makes more than 4 servings..closer to 6.
