"This is a very traditional dish in Denmark. Don't let the list of ingredients scare you away, the dish goes together quite smoothly and quickly. I have opted for a mix of pork/turkey in the meatballs whereas the original recipe calls for pork only. In Denmark the ground pork is very lean (9-12% fat) but the fat is much higher in Canada, and the meatballs would be too greasy with only pork. However, if you can get lean (12%) ground pork you should use that only. I sometimes even make a mix of 1/3 each of ground pork, turkey and beef which works well, I make a big batch and freeze the rest of the meatballs. The dish is served over rice with a number of toppings that you add at the table (rasins, bananas, shredded coconut, diced cucumber - I personally never serve it with the toppings, but it is noted in the original recipe."

"I love fusion dishes like this! I've never had meatballs in a curry, and in fact have never had a Danish curry- I thought it tasted great. A great melding of European and Indian flavors- very cool. I do not eat pork, so I just used ground turkey instead- it worked fine for me. I skipped the toppings and just served the curry over rice with mango chutney and tamarind chutney."
"I thought this was really good, not quite so successful at home. If you like curry flavors, you will like this. I made the meatball mix and ended up chilling it overnight. I then poached the meatballs in the morning, and so putting it all together in the evening was a snap. Served over rice."
"Delicious! Very flavorful and easy to prepare. I served with pan fried potatoes. We did not use the noted toppings (coconut, banana). Made for PRMR."
"WOW, this is scrumptious and as a bonus it's very healthy. In my opinion it didn't need any of the suggested toppings and was also a healthier meal by skipping then. This supplied so much flavor it stand alone perfect. I used rice with some veggies minced very small mixed into it. This made a very satisfying meal with a cup of Recipe #420725."
