Meatballs give this fiery Indian dish a new twist, while soft pumpkin and fresh coriander help balance the spice to make it enjoyable for those who like it milder


Lean lamb mince

325 g


1 medium

Wholemeal bread

25 g, made into breadcrumbs

Indian curry paste

60 g, Vindaloo variety

Olive oil

1 tbs

Brown onion

1 medium, finely chopped

Canned diced tomatoes

400 g

Butternut pumpkin

500 g, cut into 2cm pieces

Baby spinach

6 cup(s)

99% fat-free, plain Greek yoghurt, unsweetened

½ cup(s), (120g)

Fresh coriander

½ cup(s), coarsely chopped

Cooked basmati rice

2 cup(s)


  1. Place mince, egg, breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon curry paste in a medium bowl. Mix well to combine. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls to make 16 meatballs.
  2. Heat oil in a deep non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook, turning, for 4–5 minutes or until browned. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes or until softened. Add remaining curry paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  3. Add tomatoes, pumpkin and ¾ cup (185ml) water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 8–10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through. Add spinach and cook for 1–2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Serve vindaloo with a dollop of yoghurt, sprinkled with coriander and rice.
