Spicy Lamb Meatball

I had made some Spicy Lamb Meatballs a few weeks ago and popped them in the freezer took them out planning on to taking them on a picnic this weekend with some salad & hummus , even managed to soak the chickpeas.

Soaked Chickpeas

The weather and my health this weekend conspired against so a rethink that turned out better than I could have imagined . I wanted something bright and cheerful to combat the grey weather but a bit rib sticky so stew definitely in order though these meatballs would also be lovely with a tomato sauce and pasta.
