  2. Bring to the boil stirring all the while, once smooth and thick, add the seasoning mix well and remove from the heat.
  3. Grease a small casserole dish with olive oil and arrange the halved meatballs in base of the dish
  4. Sprinkle with the meatballs with a tablespoon of Old India Taco Seasoning or your chosen spice
  5. Build up in layers of onion and potatoes, ending with potatoes, season with a little salt and pepper
  6. Pour the white sauce over the top and jiggle well to distribute the sauce evenly

Serving suggestions

Serve with Jamie's tender-stem broccoli


Replace the meatballs with any meat of your choice. The cooking time is easily long enough to properly cook any meat, providing it is cut into small enough pieces.
