Strong Meatball Frikkadel curry, Frikadelle are flat, pan-fried meatballs of minced meat

I like to lightly fry my (meatball) frikadelle beforehand and drain them on a paper towel before I add them to the curry. This prevents the frikadelle from breaking up while it is cooking in the gravy.

This dish is best served with creamy mashed potato and rice
