Meatballs in Curry Sauce (Köttbullar i currysås)


This was a major hit with my husband! The curry adds a bit of spice to the dish while the apples and rice makes it a bit more kid friendly. A hit for all ages! I use ground turkey in this recipe but you can also use ground beef or pork, totally up to you. And just a side note, meatballs in Danish are called Frikadeller!
