Preparation time 15 minutes,
Cooking time 8 - 10 minutes,
Calories 490 per portion

ingredients

serves 4
450 g (1 lb) minced beef
1 onion, grated
salt and pepper
50 g (2 oz) fresh white breadcrumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
2 tablespoons plain flour
2 tablespoons oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
150 ml (1/4 pint) natural yogurt
1 teaspoon chilli powder
pinch of cayenne
1 teaspoon chopped parsley to garnish

method

1. Mix together the meat, onion, seasoning, breadcrumbs, egg and parsley. Form the mixture into 18 small balls the size of marbles and roll in the flour. Combine the oil and the crushed garlic and brush the mixture over the meatballs.

2. Thread the meatballs on to oiled skewers and grill for 2 - 3 minutes, turn the skewers and grill for a further 2 - 3 minutes.

3. Melt the peanut butter over a gentle heat, add the remaining ingredients and cook gently until hot, but do not let the sauce boil. Serve the meatballs on a bed of mixed salad.

4. Serve the sauce separately, garnished with chopped parsley.

Cook's Tip
A food processor 'minces' meat well. Use lean stewing or braising beef and cut into cubes before placing in machine. A mixture of beef and pork makes an interesting change.
