Ingredients

You can change the measurement from US to metric at the bottom of this list

  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp curry powder (get my recipe)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • small handful of fresh coriander
  • 1.1 lb ground chicken (chicken mince)

Instructions

  • Peel the onion and garlic and place them into the food processor. Whizz on high powder until you have a onion smoosh.
  • Add the ground coriander, turmeric, garam masala, curry powder and salt then pulse to combine
  • Finally add in the coriander and pulse to just chop.
  • Tip the onion mixture into a large bowl and add in the chicken mince.
  • Use you hands to mix everything together.
  • Use a tablespoon measure to scoop out a ball of mixture and smooth into a ball.
  • Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
  • To cook, heat a small amount of all in a frying pan and cook the meatballs for 3-4 minutes before turning and cooking for a further 3 minutes.

Notes

This recipe for Indian chicken meatballs also works well with ground turkey.
As there are no binders in this recipe I wouldn't suggest substituting in ground beef. Ground beef tends to be less sticky than ground chicken and the meatballs don't stay together well. If you want to use beef then I would suggest adding an egg and 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs to the mixture. (this will stop them being GF and paleo)
