Great curry. I made half a recipe and served it with Puppodoms and Onion Paratha. Great meal for 2.
I am new to curries and this was delish!! The complex flavors were wonderful and it was easy to prepare. I had to sub toasted yellow mustard seeds for the black ones as they are hard to find. This is highly recommended and I will definitely make this again.
I just made a recipe almost identical to this and loved it, so I thought I'd give this one a review rather than try to post another one. The main difference in mine was to use beef stock instead of chicken stock for the curry sauce. This is pretty easy, has great flavor and the meatballs are very tender. The sauce thickens up a bit as it cooks and it is delicious. I found the recipe in The Food and Cooking of Spain, Africa and the Middle East.
I have to say I was sceptical. Flour in the koftas, curry powder in the sauce and being so easy to make made me suspicious that it would not taste like real koftas. It was great. The only thing I changed was I omitted the green chillies. Next time I will probably fry the yoghurt bit by bit, in the onion and garlic mix, just to integrate it better. I served this with basmati rice and steamed asian greens.
YUM!! The whole family enjoyed this one. I decided on the beef and ended up with moist and nummy meatballs, like Jan I added the flour to the balls. We're not lovers of fresh coriander so I ommited that and topped with a little chopped spring onion for colour.We had ours with steamed Jasmine rice and vegetables that were just tossed in the wok with garlic and a little soy.
This was an amazingly simple to make (and fabulous to eat)recipe. I used minced lamb and the egg to end up with really tender, well flavoured meatballs When I was making the meatballs, I wondered if the flour mentioned should have been added to the balls or if it was meant for the floured plate. I went with adding it to the balls and not flouring the plate at all. I just put all the balls into my non-stick electric frypan and covered them (lots of bugs flying found the lights tonight) and gave them a couple of shakes as they cooked. Thanks for a fantastic recipe we will definately be making again.
