You can do the set up for this dish well ahead of time. Perfect if you have guests and don’t want to “slave” in the kitchen while they are there. I use a cheap coffee grinder to grind my spices when I need them.

Recipe

Ingredients

Meatballs

  • 250g (1/2 pound) Ground Lamb
  • 10ml (2 tsp) Cumin
  • 10ml (2 tsp) Whole Corriander Seeds
  • 5ml (1 tsp) Ginger Powder
  • 5ml (1 tsp) Chopped Garlic
  • 5ml (1 tsp) Chili Sauce such as Harissa or Sambal Oelek

Sauce

  • 400g (8 oz) Canned Tomatoes (diced or crushed)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Courgette (Zucchini)
  • 12 Button Mushroom
  • 5ml (1 tsp) Chopped Garlic
  • 5ml (1 tsp) Chili Sauce such as Harissa or Sambal Oelek
  • 1 “handful” Fresh Mint (to taste, really)

Set up

Sauce

  1. Dice the onion in small cubes.
  2. Cut the mushrooms in quarters.
  3. Cut the courgette in small chunks by cutting at an angle, turning it 1/4 turn, then slicing again, and repeat. Or simply slice the courgette.
  4. Put the tomatoes, onion, mushrooms, courgette, chopped garlic, and chili sauce in a pot.
  5. Bring to a boil, and let simmer while you make the meatballs.
  6. If you are preparing this well ahead of time, cover and reserve ( To set aside for later use.) [?] in the fridge.

Meatballs

  1. Toast the cumin and corriander in a dry pan until it just begins changing colour.
  2. Grind the toasted spices in a coffee grinder.
  3. Mix the lamb with the ground spices, the ginger, garlic and chili sauce until thoroughly homogenous.
  4. Form small meatballs, about 2cm (1″) in diameter.
  5. Assemble “brochettes” by putting the meatballs on bamboo skewers.
  6. If you are preparing this well ahead of time, cover and reserve in the fridge.

Preparation

  1. Cook the meatball brochettes on a hot grill, BBQ, or if you do not have those, a very hot skillet.
  2. Re-heat the sauce.
  3. Chop the mint coarsely.

Finish

  1. Add the mint to the sauce.
  2. Serve! I made some white rice to go with this, but you could also use couscous.
