Notes about this recipe

    I ended up using just one frying pan instead of two separate ones: sear the meatballs, remove, add the sauce and reduce down, add back in the meatballs. Saves on the washing up. Overall for a fast chilli dish this was quite nice, but there was a soapy taste in the sauce that I found unpleasant but couldn't work out where it was coming from. Don't know if it was all the paprika and coriander, or else some sort of soapy residue on one of the utensils I used?

    My family really enjoyed this but I felt the meatballs need more oomph, possibly some cayenne and ground cumin. Also took me a lot longer than 15 minutes but still a quick easy and tasty dinner. Will repeat.

    Something about this recipe didn't quite come together for me- I think the flavors of the sauce just didn't have enough time to meld in the cooking time allotted. The smoked paprika flavor to me was also too strong- though it was better with the lemony bulgur (the best part of the meal.)
