Combine the lamb mince, egg, breadcrumbs, garam masala and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Shape the mixture into 24 meatballs.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over high heat. Add the meatballs and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
Add the garlic and ginger to the same pan and cook for 5 minutes over moderate heat. Add the curry powder and cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low, then add the tomatoes. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes. Return the meatballs to the pan and heat through, about 5 minutes.
Did you know?
Lamb is leaner than it used to be, thanks to advances in breeding. And most retail cuts of lamb now carry a minimum of external fat. * Avoid pre-packaged lamb mince; 100g, cooked, may contain as much as 12g of fat.
Simple, quick and easy koftas in sauce, this made a good family meal with rice, veg, salad or even naan. Kids enjoyed helping mix and roll koftas. Must say next time I would make them according to a tastier recipe i have for koftas grilled on skewers that uses fresh mint, cumin, turmeric, allspice, etc. (Will try to put it on the site.) But this version is certainly easier. - 15 Aug 2012
