Vege Meatball curry

Serves 4

This recipe is adapted from a soya kofta curry with Quorn meatballs working well as a replacement for the koftas. It can be medium to hot in strength depending on how much chilli powder you use. I like it hot personally. Other great Vegan meatball brands include Green Cuisine, Tesco Plant Chef, Future Farm and Naked Glory.

Heat the oil in a wok or cooking pot and fry the onion until brown, just be careful not to burn the onion though as this will make the curry bitter. Add the ginger, garlic, cinnamon stick, bay leaf, turmeric and coriander powder then fry for 2 minutes. Add the chilli and garam masala and cook for a few seconds before adding the tomatoes. Fry on a fairly high heat for a further 2 minutes then reduce the heat. Add the meatballs and half the stock, bring to the boil then simmer for 10 minutes or so adding more stock if required.

Sprinkle with coriander and serve with rice or Indian bread.
