Today I tried another Moroccan dish. Kefta Shaksuka, spiced meatball cooked in an aromatic tomato sauce. I love Moroccan food because of the deep spicy flavours and the simplicity of making this dish.
500g extra lean beef mince
2 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1.5 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup chopped coriander (for the meatball)
2 tablespoon chopped coriander (for the sauce.)
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon olive oil
400g canned chopped tomatoes
For the Kefta Meatballs
In a bowl, add the mince, one onion, ½ a teaspoon of the paprika and cumin. Add the salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and coriander.
Knead and make small round balls.
For the Sauce
Heat the oil on medium heat. Add onions and cook for five minutes.
Add the remaining spices, garlic, bay leaves and coriander and cook for 1 minute.
Add the canned tomatoes, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the meatballs, ¼ cup water and cover for 20-30 minutes. Simmer ntil the sauce is thick and the meat is cook through. If the meat is not cooked but sauce is thick add more water.
