Meatball recipe

HF meatball key

Ingredients (serves 2):

1 packet: Basmati rice, rinsed well

3 cups: water

1 bunch: coriander, stalks finely chopped & leaves picked

1 packet: beef mince

1 tbs: olive oil

1/2 tub: red curry paste (caution: spicy)

1: zucchini, cut into 2 cm cubes

1 tin: diced tomatoes

1 tub: Greek yoghurt

You will need:

chef's knife, chopping board, sieve, medium saucepan, medium bowl, plate, large frying pan and wooden spoon.


1. Place the Basmati rice and the water in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes, or until the rice is soft. Drain.

2. In a medium bowl combine the coriander stalks and beef mince together. Season with salt and pepper. Roll the beef mince into meatballs (about the size of a golf ball). You should get 5 for each person. Set aside on a plate.

Flavour tip: If you have garlic add 1 clove for some extra flavour in your meatballs!

3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and brown the meatballs for 7-8 minutes, constantly moving them for even colour on each side. Add the red curry paste, zucchini and diced tomatoes and stir until combined. Simmer for 5-10 minutes and season with salt and pepper. Now is the time to add more red curry paste if desired.

4. To serve, divide Basmati rice and meatballs between plates. Top with the Greek yoghurt and the coriander leaves. Enjoy!
