Method

  1. Get your ingredients out, then boil the kettle and place a large frying pan on a medium heat and a large lidded pan on a medium-high heat.
  2. Mix 400g of lean lamb mince in a bowl with salt, pepper and 1 heaped teaspoon of garam masala.
  3. Divide into 4, then roll each piece into 4 balls with wet hands, placing them in the frying pan as you roll them and adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Toss regularly until dark golden all over.
  4. Put 1 pinch of saffron into a cup, just cover with boiling water and leave to soak.
  5. Finely slice ½-1 fresh red chilli, 2 trimmed spring onions and the stalks from ½ a bunch of coriander (reserving the leaves), put them into the large pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then squash in 2 cloves of unpeeled garlic through a garlic crusher.
  6. Fry for 40 seconds, then add the saffron and its soaking water, 1 x 400g tin of drained chickpeas and 350g of passata, cover and bring to the boil.
  7. In a small dish, swirl 1 heaped teaspoon of harissa through 4 heaped tablespoons of natural yoghurt.
  8. For the salad, roughly chop and mix ½ a cucumber, 2 little gem lettuces, 1 bunch of radishes and 2 ripe tomatoes on a board. Add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and the juice of 1 lemon, then season to taste.
  9. Loosen the sauce with a splash of water if needed, then pour into the meatball pan and season to taste.
  10. Microwave (800W) 8 small wholewheat tortillas for 45 seconds.
  11. Serve it all with orange wedges and a scattering of coriander leaves.
