Bite-sized fried meatballs on a bed of lettuce. A fun snack or appetiser for when you have friends over on the weekend!

Ingredients
500gm
beef mince
1 tsp
garlic paste
1 tsp
ginger paste
2
medium onions, grated
2
slices bread, shredded into fine crumbs
1
egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
cumin powder or garam masala
1/2 tsp
black pepper powder
1/2 tsp
turmeric powder
juice of half lemon
small bunch finely chopped coriander
1-2
green chillies, chopped
(optional)
Instructions 

Mix all the ingredients until well incorporated. Cover in a bowl and refrigerate for about an hour or up to overnight. Fry one small meatball to taste and adjust salt/spice and consistency if needed. If the mixture is too soft or breaks in the oil add some breadcrumbs. If too dry add a bit of beaten egg or yoghurt.

Shape all the remaining mixture into small bite sized meatballs, If possible refrigerate them on a tray (cover with cling film) for 20 minutes so they retain their shape when frying. Then deep fry for about 3 minutes or until brown and cooked through. Drain on tissues and serve with a dip!

Enjoy!
