Keema Kofta Spaghetti with Garlic Naan Balls

An American-Italian-Indian fusion...

Despite its seemingly Italian origins, spaghetti with meatballs is an American-Italian phenomenon and here we’ve added an exotic Indian twist! The meatballs (or kofta!) are simmered in a rich tomato sauce flavoured with two spices that go particularly well with lamb: cinnamon, which is sweet and warming, and black cardamon, which adds a lovely, smoky menthol-like flavour.

We’re serving the meal with garlic naan dough balls, a garlic raita and a ‘tricolore’ salad using coriander in place of the basil and flavoured with chaat masala.
