Lamb Meatball Curry

Recipe by I'mPat

From Recipe+ and their mid week meal feature. They also suggested you could use balti or rogan josh curry paste instead of korma and use pumpkin in place of kumara/sweet potato. Serve with basmati rice and pappadums.

Yum! I used rogan josh curry paste and it was great served as suggested. Only change I made was to rest a little at the end uncovered but still on the hotplate just to let it thicken up and cool a a little while I prepared the pappadums and served. I'd never tried kumara in a curry before but it suited it really well and made a pleasant change from regular potoatoes.
