Sweet and Spicy Meatballs With Krummel Pap

Add a review

Sultanas add a pop of sweetness to these juicy little meatballs, which are browned in the pan then simmered in a rich, lightly curried tomato sauce. To create a feast that’s truly South African, serve your meatballs with krummel pap – mielie meal cooked and fluffed with a fork to create a crumbly texture.

Preparation time


50 g breadcrumbs
40 ml milk
55 ml canola oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely grated
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
50 ml sultanas
10 g coriander, roughly chopped
10 g parsley, roughly chopped
1 egg
500 g lean beef mince
Robertsons Atlantic sea salt
Robertsons Black Pepper
15 ml oil
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 packet Knorr Mild Durban Curry Cook-In Sauce
1 x 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
1 Knorr beef stock pot (dissolved in 400ml hot water)
Robertsons Atlantic sea salt
Robertsons Black Pepper
750 ml water
15 ml Robertsons Atlantic sea salt
1 kg mealie meal

Preparation method

In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and milk together.
Heat 15ml oil in a pan, add the onion, carrot and garlic and sauté until cooked.
Mix the bread-milk mix with the onion mix and the remaining meatball ingredients, except the oil.
Heat a little bit of the oil in a pan and fry off a small piece of meatball to taste the seasoning, adjust if necessary.
Roll the mix into golf ball-sized balls.
Heat the remaining oil in the pan over a medium heat and gently fry the meatballs so they have some colour on the outside, but not cooked through.
Put aside until the sauce is ready.
Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook until soft.
Then add the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer away until desired thickness.
Season the sauce to taste.
Add your meatballs and allow them to finish cooking in the sauce.
Bring the water to a boil and add the salt.
Pour the mealie meal into the water, turn the heat down to the lowest, cover with a lid, and leave to cook for 1 hour.
Every 15 minutes use a fork to mix it up.
To Serve
Serve the saucy meatball alongside the krummel pap, garnish with fresh coriander.
