About the Recipe

Don't get me wrong - a well made meatball is a great thing - taste, nutrition and versatility. But if you sometimes hanker for a different way to present your meatballs than a simple meatball sauce, this is a great alternative. I often feature Golden curry cubes in my recipes as they seem to be easier to obtain than some other brands. But if you have, say, Torokeru or Java brand cubes at hand, those will work well in this recipe too!


for the meat balls:

1/2 medium onion

5g / 0.2 oz fresh coriander

500g / 17.5 oz minced beef

1 tsp garlic puree

1 tsp ginger puree

1 tsp mild curry powder

1/2 tsp salt

a little pepper

2 tbsp sunflower oil

for the curry:

1/2 medium onion

150g / 5.25oz carrot

1 bell pepper

8 small broccoli florets

1 tbsp sunflower oil

1 tsp garlic puree (or fresh)

1 tsp ginger puree (or fresh)

1 tsp cumin powder

600ml / 20 fl oz water

1 tsp soy sauce

1.5 tbsp tomato ketchup

6 Golden curry roux cubes


to make the meatballs:

slice & mince the 1/2 onion. finely chop the fresh coriander leaves 

put the minced beef in a bowl, add the minced onion, chopped coriander, 1 tsp of garlic, 1 tsp of ginger, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of curry powder & pepper. mix everything together well

take a dessertspoonful of the minced beef and shape into a small ball (just a bit smaller than a golf ball.) repeat until all the mince is used up

heat 2 tbsp of sunflower oil in a frying pan. fry the meatballs over a medium heat, moving the pan so the meatballs seal all over. this should take about 3 minutes

now to make the curry: 

finely chop the 1/2 onion. peel & slice the carrot. deseed & cut the bell pepper into small bite sized pieces.   if the broccoli florets are on the large side, cut into smaller florets

heat 1 tbsp of sunflower oil in a large saucepan. add 1/2 chopped onion, 1 tsp of garlic & 1 tsp of ginger. fry for 1 min, then add 1 tsp of cumin powder and stir.

add the carrot and the water, then bring to the boil

add the meatballs, bell pepper, 2 cubes of Golden curry roux. simmer for 10 minutes

add the soy sauce, tomato ketchup, 4 more Golden curry cubes and simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally

last, add the broccoli florets and cook 3-4 mins more

your Golden meatball curry is now ready to serve
