Curried Meatballs – A paleo recipe

We are almost at the end of the week and I hope you have enjoyed the recipe a day this week with our Vegan / Paleo and Gluten Free theme

I have recently begun to incorporate Paleo recipes in our menu each week. I like that I don’t have to buy all these extra ingredients … so don’t freak out if you are considering a Paleo diet. Its actually pretty simple to work with and cook

Meatballs is a big favourite in our house especially for Miss D who turns 2 on saturday (YAY!). K thought the house smelt amazing when I began frying the meatballs, I think it was the coconut oil that did it. I am sure you will have all or atleast most of the ingredients, so if your family loves meatballs, give this recipe a shot

Lesser calories is always good! 🙂



750gms ground beef

1 egg

1 small onion chopped fine

1 tbsp garlic paste

1 tbsp ginger paste

2/3 cup almond flour (powdered almond)

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1/8 tsp cinnamon powder

2 tbsp coconut oil for frying

Salt and Pepper to taste


1 can coconut milk

1 cup chicken stock

1 small onion chopped fine

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp ginger paste

In a large bowl, mix together all the meatball ingredients, excluding the coconut oil

Create medium sized meatballs, and once they are ready, heat the coconut oil in a skillet

and add in all your meatballs. We are not deep frying the meat balls so please don’t add a ton of coconut oil!!

Also add the finely chopped onion (from the sauce ingredients)

Allow the meatballs to brown on one side and then gently flip it so the other side browns up. So about 5 mins on each side

While the meatballs were cooking, I mixed the ingredients of the sauce (excld the onions as its already in the pan) in a bowl

Once the meatballs are well brown, pour the sauce and cover the skillet with a lid. Simmer until the meatballs has cooked through and the sauce thickens

I served it with white rice and it was a hit with my daughter. She loves mince so she loved every mouthful of this dish!
