(serves 3-4)
(prep time 45 mins)
For the meatballs

Ground lean beef 1/4 lbs
Garlic (crushed) 2/3 tsp
Green chilies (crushed) 1/2 tsp
Egg yolk 1 small
Cashew nuts (ground) 1 Tbs
Cayenne pepper 1/3 tsp
Cilantro/coriander powder 2/3 tsp
Cumin powder 1/3 tsp
Pepper 1/3 tsp

Mix everything in a bowl. Make into round balls about 1" diameter. Will make about 8-9.
In a frying pan heat some canola oil. Sear the meat balls from all sides. Takes about a min or two. They will cook completely in the gravy.


Red onions (sliced) 1/2 med
Tomatoes (diced) 1 med
Plain yogurt 1/4 cup
Garlic (crushed) 2/3 tsp
Ginger (crushed) 2/3 tsp
Green chilies (crushed) 1 Tbs
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Cayenne pepper 2/3 tsp
Cilantro powder 1/2 tsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Pepper 1/4 tsp
Water 2/3 cup
Oil 1/4 cup

Fry the onion until they turn golden brown.
Add garlic and ginger. Stir.
Add the tomatoes and the chilies and mix well.
Cover the pot and cook for 2-3 min on med high heat.
Take the mixture out and blend in a blender with the yogurt to make the gravy.
You can use the same pot and fry all the spices (minus the salt) for about half a min
Add the blended yogurt mixture back into the pot. Mix well to incorporate the spices.
Add salt. Add water.
Bring the heat to med high so that the gravy is bubbling slightly.
Add the meatballs carefully so they don't break.
Cover and cook on lowered heat for about 15 min or until the meatballs are fully cooked.
Sprinkle some chopped cilantro on top.
Done! :-)
