Instructions and steps:
Step 1 Preheat oven to 210°C. Cover a baking tray with a sheet of baking paper.
Step 2 Place mince, onion, egg and paprika in a bowl and use clean hands to mix until well combined. Divide mince mixture into 12 portions and roll into balls. Spread oat bran over a plate and roll meatballs in bran to evenly coat.
Step 3 Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook, turning often, for 2 minutes or until sealed and lightly browned. Place meatballs close together on prepared tray and spoon over tomato sauce. Sprinkle with grated cheese and cumin seeds. Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and cooked through.
Step 4 Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave potato and broccoli until tender. Mash potato with milk until smooth. Divide meatballs among serving plates and serve with mashed potato and broccoli.
