A nice combination of taste, and a little different. I made these half size and served them as an appetizer with a tart cranberry dip. From local newspaper.

If you are craving some lamb, but want to go easy on your budget, try these great meatballs. They have a wonderful flavor highlighted by the interesting spices. I made a creamy curry sauce with onions, and apples to drizzle on the baked meatballs, and served it with some more couscous and roasted broccoli with lemon and garlic. Derf, this is a very repeatable recipe...thanks.
