I’m not a meat ball eater, but was inspired by my very old waitrose free ‘Seasons’ cooking magazine (back in the days when they didn’t have those weekend newspapers) I made lamb kofta. My meat balls were simply minced meat with fried onion, garlic, ras el hanout & a drop of rose water, squidged together to form meaty spheres. I baked these in the oven – gallons of fat oozed out of them whilst they baked. They made washing the pan a bit of a nightmare, the kitchen stank of lamb fat all night. However, they were delicious, especially served with homemade flat breads and baba ganoush.
The June Daring Cooks’ challenge sure kept us rolling – meatballs, that is! Shelley from C Mom Cook and Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to try meatballs from around the world and to create our own meatball meal celebrating a culture or cuisine of our own choice.
