Koftay - Meatballs

2 lbs Ground Beef
2 Medium Onions
Salt to taste
1 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
1/2 tsp Green Chilli paste
1 small can Tomato Paste
1 small can Tomato Sauce
2 tsp Chilli Garlic sauce
2 tbsp Chopped garlic
Salt to taste
Chinese Salt 1 tsp
1 strand Fresh Curry leaves
Oil 

Chop off the peeled onions in a food processor.


Wash and drain the ground beef in a fine colander.

Once the onions are chopped, add the ground beef in the processor.
 Add all the spices..salt, chillies, ginger and garlic paste, paprika, cumin and all.
 Run the food processor again and process until it forms a nice smooth dough-like ball.
 Transfer into a bowl and make small ping pong sized balls.
 Shallow fry in hot oil.
 Let it strain and keep aside.
 To make the sauce you will need Tomato paste, tomato sauce and chilli garlic sauce.

In a wide pan, add some oil and chopped garlic. Please add curry leaves. Its not pictured.I was out and it didn't taste the same.

 Add the tomato sauce, paste and chilli garlic sauce.
 Let it simmer. Check for salt and season accordingly. Sometime the tomato sauce already has salt. Add some Chinese salt to perk it up.
 Add the meatballs to the sauce.
 Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Serve with hot naan and Channa Daal. I just love that combination. Enjoy!!
