Chicken meatballs in Korma sauce

hey, lovelies,

hasn’t the weather just been majestic? We,ve been mainly cooking light lunches or having picnics in the garden.

grazing on jambon,smini pizzas or bacon and cheese tater tots.

Then the other night I actually had a dream That I was cooking this recpie of chicken meatballs in korma sauce!!!

How crazy is that?

Ok I,ll admit it do dream a lot about recipes and food, (daydream too, I think my brain could just be a big block of cheese)

This recipe was dreamed up, cooked up and served up all in my sleep  ( I’ve lost the plot )

like I could of went anywhere with the dream and served it up to Jamie Doran or Chris Martin, but no it was just lils and the hubs!

I’m really looking forward to hearing how you guys get on with this one,

after all its the stuff of dreams  (yep I went there)

  1. Hi there, making this at the moment. It doesn’t say in the ingredients list about ginger for the meatballs but it does in method. Is this a typo?? Can’t wait to try this. Thanks
