Lamb meat ball curry | Kukskitchen

I luv lamb and they are great served alongside soft parathas. Mincing meat makes it very kid friendly I feel as they dont have to worry about bones or the like which would be taken care of before meat is minced. In uk, minced lamb is so easily available at local supermarkets, saves you the hassle of haeing to clean and mince the meat urself.
