Middle Eastern meatballs and coriander sauce


Adapted Pete Evans recipe for Middle Eastern sausages with coriander sauce. ( from Healthy Every Day). See a link for it above.  He makes the beef into sausages on kebab sticks, We’ve made meatballs instead. The coriander sauce really  makes the dish special. Everyone, even Miss 8 who doesn’t even like coriander, is dipping and coating all their food in it. At this rate we’ll need to start planting coriander because we use so much for this sauce.
