Curried Kuftas

1 pound ground beef (or 1/2 kg)
3 tbs sifted breadcrumbs
4 small onions
salt and pepper
1 tbsp flour
3 cloves of garlic
butter or ghee
1 tbsp curry
1 tsp tomato paste (or more if u like)
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 pound (1/2 kg) potatoes

chop an onion and pass through a meat grinder along with the meat and bread
crumbs. Or you can grate the onion and mix it by hand with the ground beef.
(or even use the food processor if youre brave) Add salt and pepper and mix
well. Make small balls the size of a walnut with the meat mixture (1 tbsp),
dip in flour to coat well. Fry the kuftas in the butter or ghee and remove. add the remaining onions and the garlic to the pan and fry. Dilute the tomato paste in some water and add with the curry powder to the onion and garlic mixture in the pan. Bring to a boil, add the rest of the water season and boil for like 10 minutes. (the recipe said to use 7 tins-- I have no clue what a tin is, perhaps a cup) Add the lemon juice and the fried kuftas. Boil the potatoes, peel them and cut into large pieces (in halves or quarters depending on size). Add them to the boiling kuftas, and allow to simmer for an hour. Serve with rice
