    Mix the lamb, onion, chilli, spices and the chopped coriander leaves. Add the egg and season well, then combine everything with clean hands. Form into small meatballs about the size of a walnut.

  • Step 2

    Fry the meatballs and chorizo in a little oil in a large frying pan until browned all over (you may need to do this in batches). Scoop out, then add the harissa and cook for a minute.
