If you want a change from the usual way you cook meatballs, this flavoursome dish is absolutely delicious. With the spices you would usually find in a Tagine and served with a spiced up Harissa sauce and giant couscous. It is a real winner!!
In a bowl mix:
– 2tsp cumin seeds and 2tbsp coriander seeds, dried toasted and crushed in a pestle and mortar
– 50g breadcrumbs
– 3 garlic cloves, crushed
– 500g lamb mince
– juice of 1 lemon
– 1 egg, beaten
– 10/15g fresh mint leaves, chopped
After mixing and seasoning all the ingredients together refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight, like I did.
I served the meatballs with giant couscous and a basic homemade tomato sauce spiced up with Harissa paste, you can add as much or as little as you like. Because my kids don’t like their food too spicy I mixed half the sauce with the Harissa and left the other half plain.
