  • Meatballs:
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion grated
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp. roasted geera powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder (duck and goat curry if you have any)
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 sprig chive minced
  • 2 sprigs fine leaf thyme
  • 1/2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 pimento pepper minced
  • 1/2 cup chadon beni minced
  • 2 tbsp. green seasoning optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Curry Sauce:
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 cups coconut milk divided
  • 2 tbsp. curry powder
  • 2 tsp. amchar masala
  • 2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 pimento pepper
  • 2 tsp. geera
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place the minced beef in a large mixing bowl. Add all the seasonings to the meat. Add the beaten egg and mix all of the ingredients together. Mix until well blended.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Form meat into approximately 1 1/2 inch balls, and place on baking sheet.
  • Note: For those who don’t like measuring each ball just average about 2 tablespoon of the meat.
  • Place the meatballs on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Here is the baked meatballs. I love these, because most of the fat from the meat was drained away during the baking.
  • Prepare the rest of the ingredients for the curry sauce. Mix together the turmeric, curry and masala. Add 1/4 cup coconut milk and mix well. In a large pot heat oil over medium high heat. Add onions and cook until soft. Mix in garlic, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the chadon beni and pimento. Stir. Add the curry mixture. Stir and cook for 1 minute. Cook until it starts looking sticky. Add coconut milk. Bring to a boil.
  • Add the meatballs to the coconut curry sauce. Gently stir to coat evenly. Cook for 5-10 minutes.
  • Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot over (basmati) rice or noodles if desired. Man, try it with some buss up shut and all lol!
