    YourCakeIWillTake's Note:

    Traditionally made with lamb and mint, this is my own altered version of the scrumptious Indian dish. These meatballs are pretty spicy, so season to your known preferences. I like to use lots of pepper and cayenne and minimal salt. The prep time can be cut by preparing the ingredients in a food processor. All measurements are approximate, feel free to use what you have on hand! There are many ways to serve them. My favorite method is in a fresh, warm pita with a cucumber-yogurt sauce or with terriyaki and a handful of onions. My boyfriend likes to eat his with spicy mustard. Or for a flavor crossover use them as meatballs for spaghetti! Try a cool, light salad as a side, and don't forget dessert!

      We're not fans of lamb (except the living version), so I was pleased to come upon your "twist" on these koftas. I used kashmiri chili powder for more chili flavor with a little less heat and halved the recipe. I opted for soy sauce and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I also roasted the bell peppers because I seem to be on a vegetable roasting kick lately. Great little meatballs that I served with pitas and Cucumber Raita. Thank you for posting! *Made for PAC Fall 2008.*
