1. For the meatballs, place all the dried spices in a frying pan and dry-roast over a medium to high heat until fragrant. Blend them in a spice mill or crush with a mortar and pestle.
2. Stir the spice mixture, onion, garlic, mince, tomato purée and salt together. Form into small balls then place in the fridge.
3. For the sauce, put all the ingredients (including the coriander stalks but holding back half the coriander leaves) into a saucepan and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Pour into a blender and blend until smooth, then pass through a fine sieve.
