Easy Tikka Meatball Curry

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I know winter is over and this dish is perfect for those cold nights, but this Tikka Meatball Curry is also a great go-to quick dinner idea too. This is a great and versatile recipe, you can make your own meatballs if you prefer and choose to use chicken, beef or lamb meatballs, whichever your family prefers.  I like to serve this with steamed vegetables and rice to stretch it out a little further.
