Essential Tips

  • Leftovers:
  • For leftover meatballs, warm through and serve with rice, yoghurt and a sprinkling of toasted pine nuts or almonds.
  • Tips:
  • 1. Harissa is a hot and spicy North African chilli paste, available in delicatessens and larger supermarkets.
  • 2. The meatballs can be made and rolled a day ahead and cooked when ready to serve.
  • 3. To make lamb kebabs, mould the meat around long skewers and barbeque for a smoky flavour.
