Mutton Gola Kabab (Meatballs)

This is an easy but very tasty snack to make at home. You can serve it as an appetiser or even as a side with mains or better yet make a sinful gravy and drop these into it for a sinful mutton kofta curry. This recipe has evolved and aged with me as I grew up . I saw my mom learn to make meatballs in this way from a Kashmiri family friend and then she modified the recipe to suit even non Kashmiri menus. Mom would often make a delicious tomato gravy that she would dunk these into and that would be a meal to remember. I have often served these with drinks at dinner parties where I dress them up with a little hat of chutney or a bed of a mini nawabi parantha. All in this recipe is all things one would like in a delectable dish, easy, simple and so very yummy.
