Indian Spiced Meatballs with Yogurt Sauce and Chutney

Are you looking for something interesting to cook using our Leyden Glen Lamb? But you're stretched for time? Here's a really tasty recipe which makes a great quick supper or a nice appetizer at a party. Not difficult or time consuming!

This recipe is great to take to a party or serve as an "exotic" appetizer. I took it to a potluck one night and the meatballs were gone in 10 minutes!

Indian Spiced Meatballs

1 pound ground lamb

1 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 cloves garlic, mashed in a garlic press

1 teaspoon ground ginger (alternately use grated fresh ginger)

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (if you like things spicy)

Mix all together. If you have time, let it sit in the fridge overnight. Form into meatballs using a tablespoon measure of ground mixture per meatball. Bake in oven or saute on top of stove until cooked through. 

Meatballs can be made ahead of time and re-heated. Serve with Yogurt Sauce and Indian Chutney.

Yogurt Sauce

1 cup yogurt (either Greek or regular)

juice of half a lemon

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon kosher salt

pepper to taste

Mix together and let sit overnight if you have time to let flavors develop. I always make a double batch of the yogurt sauce because it is so delicious!

 I made a big batch of Apple and Tomato Chutney making a version of this recipe from the UK. It is really tasty and besides being a nice dip for the Indian Spiced Meatballs, it tastes great on crackers with cheddar cheese. It was really easy to make and made the house smell great!
