1 Mix mince and garam masala together. Roll mince into 16 evenly sized meatballs. Heat oil in a large frying pan and add the meatballs, turning every few minutes. Meanwhile blitz the capsicum, mushrooms, onion, paprika, tomatoes and chilli in a food processor to form a chunky vegetable sauce (if you don’t have a processor just finely dice the vegetables and mix the ingredients together).
2 Pour the vegetable sauce on to the meatballs and add the beans. Stir and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through. Cook couscous according to packet instructions and add the cinnamon.
3 Serve meatballs with couscous and natural yoghurt. Garnish with fresh rocket.
