Jamie’s lamb meatballs

As per usual, this is another one of Jamie’s recipes that pushes me out of my comfort zone, this time by cooking lamb. In Greece, I am used to eat my mother’s lamb, but I had never attempted making any lamb recipe on my own since I moved to Norway. How did it go? Next time I’ll double the recipe. It was that good!

I am a big fan of meatballs in general, so this was one of the recipes I wanted to try since I first bought the book. I was a bit reluctant due to the choice of meat, but I gave in a bought some lamb and some garam masala to season the meat.

The salad that goes with this dish is a simple romaine lettuce salad with tomatoes and radishes. The only thing that I would do differently would be adding some balsamic vinegar to the dressing. Otherwise this was a salad that can accompany well any meat dish.

I really like the addition of the yogurt sauce on the side. I mixed it with the tomato sauce in my plate and it played very well with the rest of the ingredients.

Being honest, this is clearly a winter dish and it suits better colder weather than warm, but, in my defence, 10 degrees and rain (which was the weather of the day, in July, mind you) is not your typical summer weather.

All in all, I loved the combination of chickpeas with the meatballs and the heat in the sauce. This was a delicious recipe! Will I make this again? Yes, definitely, in the winter!
