Today for dinner I wanted to make something different but at the same time easy. So, I decided to make Nepali Style Meatball Curry. This recipe has been in my to-do list for a long time now and finally I got to make it. Whenever, I make Momos (Recipe Here), if there is leftover filling, I simply make small balls and steam it. After, doing so for couple of times, I came up with an idea of making a curry out of it. Here you go guys enjoy this easy yet extremely delicious Meatball Curry Recipe :)
