Meat balls in coconut-curry sauce a la Coop

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.

Quiet recently I served these "boller i karry a la Arla" for my mother at our weekly Sunday lunch. This time I located another recipe on boller i karry  from Coop with the use of fresh ginger, soya sauce and coconut cream.
