Meat balls in curry sauce a la Arla

Meat balls in curry sauce known as "Boller i karry" is a classic Danish food, which also is referred to mormormad (Grand Ma´s food). Meat balls in curry has always been one of my favourite food, which I always pick, when available for example in the canteen at work.

As it has been some time since I last made "boller in karry" I decided to make this dish for my weekly Sunday dinner, which I serve for my mother. This time I used a recipe from Arla, where I made a few modification as I had more meat and too little dairy cream of 8% fat substituting the missing dairy cream with full-fat milk.

Boller i karry - meat balls in curry sauce a la Søndag: - 4 servings
  • Meat balls:
  • 450 g minced meat of veal and pork

  • 9 tablespoon of fine oat flakes
  • pepper
  • 1½ l water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Curry sauce
  • 20 g butter
  • ½-1 onion - finely minced
  • 2 teaspoon of curry
  • 1 little apple - grated
  • 2½ tablespoon wheat flour
