How to Make Meatball and Mushroom Stew

  • Grind the bell-peppers, 1 onion, coriander and green chilli to a coarse mixture.
  • Add this mixture along with the cumin and pepper powders, to the mince and mix well.
  • Heat oil in a cooker/ thick bottom sauce pan.
  • Add the onions and cook on medium heat to a light brown.
  • Add the whole spices, garlic and stock cube, mix well and cook for a minute.
  • Add 3-4 cups water, bring to a boil and then turn off the heat.
  • Make golf-ball size meatballs of the mince mixture and place them in the cooker/vessel, starting from an outer edge and working your way in concentric circles, to the centre.
  • Cover and cook for 1 whistle on high heat and simmer for 8 mins (about 20 minutes in a covered saucepan).
