    Submitted by schnappy on 12. December 2015 - 12:08.

    This is a very tasty and lovely dish, but it is a lot of work for meatballs. Considering you only need two teaspoons of the Baharat spice for the recipe I would have made a much smaller amount had I analysed the individual quantities more carefully. Alternatively,  I would have just purchased a small jar. I halved it and still have so much left over I'm going to have to find lots of recipes that use Baharat spice mix.

    Wonderful. The whole family loved them. Had to use ready made Baharat spice, so the homemade version is probably even better.

    Submitted by ronellem on 12. January 2015 - 13:29.

    A very tasty middle eastern variant on spagetti bolognaise! The meatballs were very soft and had to be handled carefully not to break.

    TIP

    The spice mix makes a large enough quantity to be used in marinades or with other meats like beef ,chicken or fish and can be made in advance.

  • These were the best meatballs

    Submitted by RixyRix on 8. January 2015 - 20:17.

    These were the best meatballs ever...Mixed up my Cumin and Coriander in the Baharat part and then overmixed my meatball mince as I did 2 x recipe (sauce + meatballs) and it did not mix well first time round so I put it on speed 5 for a minute.. haha - ended up a mush and had to spoon onto baking tray.. but once cooked was soooo good! Lots of Baharat spice mix left but after looking online seems like a good handy spice so all good.

    Submitted by cocokarina on 2. March 2014 - 22:04.

    Amazing. I followed the recipe exactly and it came out absolutely scrumptious. My boyfriend is a big fan of lamb so I chose this recipe mostly for him... however by the end of it we were fighting over the last meatball!  He loved it.  It's definitely a new favourite. The supermarket had run out of lamb mince so I bought 'heart smart' lamb steaks and minced it in the thermomix myself. As I had removed all visible fat it was both healthy AND delicious. tmrc_emoticons.) Thanks Russell

    Submitted by browneyedgirl on 5. September 2013 - 19:10.

    This is delicious!  I've made it for dinner tonight although it turned out a bit spicer than I had intended because I used hot paprika.  It will stay on our rotating menu I think.  Thank you!
