I bought Naza a recipe book from Borders quite some time ago. One-Pot Casserole Recipes. Simple dishes - cooked in one pot.
For Ramadhan, she decided to try the recipes out. We had meatballs for buka puasa on the 8th Ramadhan. Interestingly, they are easy to make. Well, I helped Naza to make the meatballs. She prepared the ingredients.
It's really simple, I'm listing it here from the top of my head. ½kg Minced meat 1 teaspoon Italian herbs (or mixed herb) 1 egg Salt & pepper to taste
Mixed them all together (I used bare hands - a la Jamie Oliver). Roll into balls. Size - up to you. Do note that it will 'shrink' a bit after fried. And not too big, as it will take longer time to cook.
Deep fry the meatballs until brown.
I prepared the protein (with fat), and Naza prepared the gravy, carb and fibre. Gravy is from Ikea - okay, so we cheated a bit. Carb - boiled potatoes. Fibre - boiled carrots and broccoli
Nice coloured meal, and yummy. I don't know why though, the meatballs are kinda 'dry' inside, not quite like the ones in Ikea.
