Melbourne is known for its fickle weather. We’ve had a couple of warm days which made me feel like summer hasn’t left us yet. For the last couple of days, however, the chill has finally set in to remind us that we are half way through Autumn.
It’s the time of the year where comfort food reigns my appetite. It’s the time of the year where my poor old stick blender is heavily used to ensure my soup is all smooth and velvety. It is also the time of year my cravings for curries are stronger than ever.
My last meatball dish has really set the motion to more meatball recipes. As much as I relish the convenience of cooking with mince meat directly (i.e. shorter cooking time and minimal prep), there’s something about rolling them into meatballs which makes me feel like the meal is more put together.
I confess that I have made this beef meatball curries 3 weeks in the row and we are still lovin’ it! From the cook’s perspective, it was an easy one dish meal, meat and vegetables all in one pan! From an eater and rice lover point of view, it is saucy and tasty with a kick to the palate. I love that it is a dish that calls for lots of steamy basmati rice to mop up the delicious sauce!
