Morrocan style meatballs and endive salad

I invented this dish one day when I was in for experimenting quite a bit. This sweet and sour dish is made of Moroccan-style meatballs on a bed of endives with vinaigrette.

The Meatballs (for 2):
- 400g minced lamb
- fig jam
- 1 good pinch powdered cumin
- 1 good pinch powdered ginger
- 1 good pinch powdered paprika
- 1 good pinch powdered flaked chillies
- sultanas
- 1 dash of old balsamic vinegar
- 1 clove of garlic very finely cut
- 1 diced fresh tomato
- salt, black pepper

Mix well, form balls, and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes to your liking on a grid to let the fat drip. One's never healthy enough...

- 2 spoons of olive oil
- 1 spoon of water
- 1 spoon of balsamic vinegar
- some walnut kernels
- salt, black pepper

Wash the endives, cut them in slices and place in the plate, sprinkle with vinaigrette, and dispose the meatball on top.

Very tasty, and it's pretty fast when you're too lazy to cook when you are back from work...
