So today we decided on having something American for lunch, and what better than the classic meatloaf accompanied with sour cream mashed potatoes, perhaps one of America’s most loved comfort foods ! I think these muffin sized meat loaves are perfect size for individual serving , and I think they look cute too!! I’ve added an Indian touch to these muffin meat loaves with the addition of Kashmiri chilly powder, ginger , garlic and cilantro, some of the big guns of Indian cuisine . The brown sugar tomato glaze balances the little heat in the meatloaf.

Note:

1. Make sure to use lean ground beef to avoid the excess grease drippings from the muffin pan .

2. To be on the safer side, you can keep a baking sheet below the muffin pan to catch the dripping.
