Video recipe: Lamb Meatballs in Red Curry

Here is a curry you can make in under 30 minutes! Lamb is literally what we make most Sundays. This time H bought home ground lamb. It got me thinking, how can I make this extra delicious? I tried something new, and it tasted great. Give it a try. 

I combined ground lamb with homemade bread crumbs, eggs, fresh coriander, pepper, onions, ginger garlic and green chilies, made meatballs, shallow fried them in oil until brown and threw in curry. You can actually have these meatballs as an appetizer, as they are already loaded with flavor, or you may add them into a curry. Either way, they will be finger lickin' good. It is so versatile.that it goes well on pasta, rice, quinoa or even have it with roti, naan or bread. Recipe follows.
