Recipe - African Meatballs

Let's stick with the African theme for another day. The traditional Swedish meatballs are given an African twist in this one.

African meatballs (serves 4)

2 onions, chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
500 g chopped tomatoes
2 dl water
4 tomatoes, chopped

600g mince
2 - 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 egg
1 - 2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 dl flat leaf parsley, chopped
1/2 dl coriander, coarsely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Fry the onion in the oil in a medium sized pot. Add the chopped tomatoes and water. Let this simmer for 15 minutes and then add the chopped fresh tomatoes.

Mix mince, garlic, egg, cumin, cinnamon, parsley, coriander, salt and pepper. Roll 12 large meatballs from the mince. Put them into the tomato sauce and let them simmer on a low heat for about 15 minutes, until cooked through.

Serve with rice and maybe a salad.
