Meatballs in Eggplant Stew with Garam Masala

Recipe by Abraham Risho

“Every culture in the world has some form of meatball which they consider comfort food; something you can eat in small bites as hors d’oeuvres, or pile atop pasta or rice for a quick, yet scrumptious meal. For me, Garam Masala is a go-to spice, quickly elevating your cooking skill, giving depth and flavor. This recipe takes patience, but it’s well worth the wait! Although the sauce can be cooked rather quickly, it’s best if you let the onions cook slowly to develop flavor and enrich the sauce. I came up with this stew after my girlfriend made a delicious batch of these meatballs. I prefer to make meatballs with lamb, sautéing them in rich, seasoned ghee which compliments the deeply flavorful dish. Take special care, however, to brown the meatballs on all sides to keep their structure.“

~Chef Abraham Risho
