Meatball curry

1 lb minced meat
1/2 tsp roasted coriander powder
1 tsp unroasted cumin powder
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 egg
3 slices bread soaked in water and squeezed dry
2 green chillies

Mix all the ingredients and blend in a food processor for a minute. Make small lime size balls and leave aside. I made half the quantity meatballs for the full amount of sauce.

1 tbsp oil
2 tsp onion chopped
2" cinnamon stick
2" lemon grass optional
curry leaves
1 1/2 cups tomatoes chopped
2 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp roasted curry powder (or 1 tbsp coriander powder and 1/4 tsp garam masala)
2 tsp chillie powder
3 tbsp coconut milk powder in 2 cups water
1/2 tsp lime juice

Use a pan that will accommodate the meat balls to be arranged in a single layer. Heat oil add onions, cinnamon stick, lemon grass, curry leaves and fry until golden brown. Add all the ingredients except lime juice and boil. Then lower the cooker and gently arrange uncooked meat balls in the gravy and simmer for 1/2 hour.
Do not stir, shake the pan occasionally and adjust seasoning and add lime juice before removing from heat.
