Meat Balls are a favourite among the young and old. It is amazing what creativity can do when preparing food. Today I decided to have meat ball curry for lunch. While getting ready with the preparation, I remembered a Bottle of Mc Currie Mango Chutney which I had in the refrigerator. Contemplating how I could turn Meat Balls into a spicy dish, I came up with the following recipe. Mc Currie shares with you today “Meat Balls with a Spicy Twist’
