Curry Beef and Tomato Meatballs

This is a simple recipe that will appeal to most kids. The curry is very mild and just adds a hint of extra flavour to the beautiful, rich tomato base. This is a really generous recipe that will create around 32 meatballs that are similar in size to a golf ball. My family loves this recipe and it’s usually very quiet around the dinner table when this is on the menu. Enjoy!
