I Love Meatballs


These Mutton Meatballs have seen sitting in my draft folder for a few weeks already. And I can't remember the recipe😝


Well, actually I can but just agak-agak. It's very basic after all. Just minced mutton, mashed potatoes, minced onions, grated carrots, salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric and an egg.


Strictly for mutton lovers because of the gamey smell in spite of the spices. Maybe I put too little. Or I should have added ginger. I can experiment some more next time. 

These mutton meatballs were deep fried and I thought they were very good. Don't attempt baking them because I did and threw out the whole lot. Not good.

  1. Ooooooo I like to eat gamey mutton. no, no, no, don't put ginger in it because the ginger taste would overpower the taste of tumeric and cumin.

  2. I love them too! Oh? Use potatoes to hold them together, eh? Gotta try that. I used bread crumbs but of course, that's taboo now - not gluten-free. Will try this soon.

    1. Yes, the potatoes hold them very well. No need to add flour.

  3. I seldom cook mutton at home so I will substitute it with pork and hope it will also taste good.
