Meatballs with A Brown Gravy Served with Mashed Potatoes and Mix Vegetable

Usually we always make a typical meatball curry, this time wanted something mild and at the same time flavoursome . A recipe very much inspired by the Swedish meatballs. Here I have used Chicken mince with bacon mince for the meatballs. Also a combination of beef mince with Pork mince is fantastic

My family enjoyed this version of a meal
