Mellow Meatballs (Nigella Lawson)


Mellow Meatballs (Nigella Lawson)

This week at I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC), we are doing a new segment called Monthly Featured Chef. This month, Nigella Lawson is the featured chef. Everyone knows Nigella Lawson, the super gorgeous talented chef whose passion for food and cooking is amazing.

Quoting IHCC, this week is a dedication to the glory of Nigella and her recipes. Oh yeah! So, I have chosen Nigella's Mellow Meatballs as the dish for this week's event.


Recipe slightly adapted from Nigella.com.

Ingredients: 
(Serves 2) 

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon red curry paste
20 mini meatballs, about 1-inch each
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup reduced-fat coconut milk
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
1 cup chickpeas, drained
2 cups diced pumpkin and sweet potato
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup dill, finely chopped


How to:

1. Heat up vegetable oil over medium heat in a frying pan. Add curry paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant. Add the meatballs, turning them around until they are covered by the oil-curry mixture.

2. Add ground cinnamon and ground ginger. Continue frying for about 2 minutes. Then, add coconut milk, tomatoes, chickpeas, pumpkin, sweet potato, and chicken stock.

3. Bring to a boil. Then, reduce heat to low-medium and simmer gently for about 25 minutes. Once done, scoop into bowls and garnish with chopped dill.


I adore this dish's robust flavor and gorgeous color.

Sprinklings of green dill provide such nice contrast.

Thanks Nigella for your wonderful recipe!

I keep the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. The next day, I reheat and pack it for my lunch at work. It tastes much deeper and richer. Such bliss and yumminess!

  1. Hi Joyce,

    This Nigella meatball curry looks very saucy and yummy. Good to know that it is not too difficult to cook too.

  8. This has me wanting to rush to the kitchen. I love a good red curry, but never would have thought of doing meatballs in this way, and I'm loving the sweet potato and pumpkin in here too. I would just love a great big bowl of this right now. Excellent choice this week.

  9. So pretty Joyce and I love the red curry--especially with the cinnamon and ginger added. I think with dishes like this, the leftovers the next day are even better. Great Nigella pick! ;-)
