Sri Lankan Curried Meat Balls


Temper the onions with 2 tspn of cooking oil. When it’s golden brown add the curry leaves. Then add all the ingredients for the curry, mix well and bring it to a boil. When the mixture boils, carefully drop the raw meat balls one at a time. Occasionally, shake the sauce pan while cooking instead of stirring with a spoon.
When its well done, remove it from fire and spread 1 tspn of roasted curry powder. Serve with rice and curry.
