These spicy meatballs are super tasty but not “hot” so the kids will still eat them. Stuff in a tortilla or pita with salad or serve with rice, chutney and veggies – you can also make the mixture into burger patties and tuck in a bun if its burger night at your place.

Arrange the meat balls on the prepared tray, spacing them out for heat circulation.

7

Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for 10 - 15 minutes; shake the pan during cooking to brown the meatballs on all sides.

In a small bowl combine the yoghurt, mint, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
