Holy wow, this was good!
Ingredients for Kofta (meatballs):
450g minced beef
Knob of grated ginger and 2 cloves grated garlic
1 small red chilli, de seeded and finely chopped
1 tsp ground cumin, coriander, garam masala, black pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric
A good tbsp of fresh mint, very finely chopped
Mix all together very well, shape into small meatballs and chill for at least 30 mins.
1 large onion, finely diced
Confession, I cheated and used 2 tbsp of sugar/gluten free curry paste (shoot me!)
Frozen spinach, I used 6 small “blocks”
Small tin of cherry tomatoes
Extra chopped mint leaves
Heat oil of choice in a large shallow frying pan. Cook the meatballs, turning to brown evenly. Takes about 10 mins, set aside.
Sauté the onion for a few mins until softened, add the curry paste and cook for a couple of minutes then add the tomatoes, spinach and about half a cup of water. Let the sauce cook for another 10 mins stirring every now and then. Meatballs now go into the sauce and simmer for 5 mins. Add a splash more water if necessary.
