This is another recipe adapted from Alia's Creative Life. I am increasingly shocked at the cost of my grocery bill which seems to rise each week as the global economy continues to create a painful 'credit crunch'. I 'work' part time and try to cook economically and create a variety of family meals on a budget. I wander around the supermarket tutting to myself as I seem to have a photographic memory for grocery prices and I feel like these huge supermarkets are doing an excellent job of ripping us off! My Dad laughs at me because I grumble about inflation and he still laughs about my comment that 'Budgie Millet has gone up over 100%'. It is a good job the budgie has a tiny appetite!

I can't say he was overjoyed to have a Camera stuck in his cage.
He is 8yrs old and very chatty.
He loves Millet!

These spicy kebabs were very easy to make and make a fast food style meal to be eaten with salad, pitta bread and sauce. I think you could use any regular meatball/ meatloaf recipe and add spice. In my case I added Balti Curry Powder. Yeah for Spicy Balls. They were a hit in this house!
400g of Lean Minced Beef
400g of Lean Minced Pork
1 large grated onion
2 tsp of dried Mixed Herbs
2 tablespoons of Balti Curry Powder
Plonk all ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. ( I used clean hands to do this job.) Leave the mixture for an hour or so to chill in the fridge. Roll into small, walnut sized balls. Deep fry your balls (No giggling please!) For 5 minutes. Serve hot with Pitta bread or Naan bread, salad and Raita Sauce. I have made a note to myself to experiment with a vegetarian recipe for this style of kebab, it will probably involve my old favourites, Chick peas.
