Method :

Place the lamb mince in a large mixing bowl and add the onion, ginger, garlic, chili, cardamom, egg and breadcrumbs. Season well with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Line an oven tray with baking paper. Roll a level tablespoon of the mixture into balls and lay them on the prepared tray. Heat a wok with ghee. Add the meatballs in 2 batches and cook over moderate heat until browned all over. Transfer the meatballs to a large bowl. To make the sauce, heat the ghee in a pan, add the onion, chili, ginger, garlic and turmeric. Cook and stir over low heat until the onion is soft. Add the coriander, cumin, chili powder, vinegar, meatballs and water and stir gently. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in the combined yoghurt and coconut milk and simmer for another 10 minutes with the pan partially covered. Serve with steamed white rice.
