    Sorry to all that I promised I would get this out yesterday...was really busy!
    Anyway...this is delicious as it is, although I have made a recent one in all beef mince and that was just as nice!

    Syn Free on Original, serve with rice for syn free on EE.

    Serves: 4
    Ready in about 1 hour.

    1 onion
    4 garlic cloves
    8oz/227g each of extra-lean minced pork and lamb (again I have just used minced beef)
    1tsp each of ground ginger, paprika and finely grated lemon zest.
    2tbsp freshly chopped coriander
    1 egg
    1pt/568ml chicken stock made from Bovril
    3 tbsp mild curry powder (I used hot as I like things spicy!)
    400g chopped tomatoes (I used passata as I prefer very few chunks!)
    5 tbsp very low fat natural yoghurt plus a little to serve.

    Method
    1 Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic. Place the pork and lamb mince in a bowl with half of the garlic, the ginger, paprika, lemon zest and coriander. Beat the egg and add to the mixture. Using your fingers, combine the ingredients and shape into 24 balls. Chill for at least 30 mins.
    2 Place the onion, remaining garlic and half the stock in a pan and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 15-20 mins until the sauce thickens. Stir in the curry powder, tomatoes, yoghurt and the remaining stock and simmer gently.
    3 Add the meatballs in a single layer, cover and cook gently for 20 mins, stirring occasionally until the meatballs are cooked. Spoon a little very low fat natural yoghurt on top.
    I leave mine over night (try to resist the temptation!) so that the flavours are stronger!

    Just to give you an update re the all beef mince one....I didnt like it at all...the sauce was lovelly and thick and you wouldnt have known any different to a take away, but the meat balls themselves could have done with more flavour, especially salt!
    I think personally in future I will be sticking to just the pork and lamb mince ones as they have a load more flavour!
