Spiced Up Meatballs with Carrot and Cinnamon

carrot beef meatballsDeep fried meatballs seasoned with fresh herbs and spices always taste heavenly. This is yet another meatballs recipe combined with carrots and seasoned with cinnamon. Although I've used beef mince for the same, you can replace it with mutton or chicken mince. While making these meatballs, make sure you add carrot at the last moment else the base may get soggy if kept for long time. Use your favorite dip to nicely complement these spicy and lip smacking meatballs. If you don't prefer deep fried food, you can go ahead with the baked version which tastes equally good. Leftovers of these meatballs can be included in your breakfast patties. Let's make these tasty meatballs in a few easy steps.
