Recipe: Chicken Meatballs

Okay, I just did this for the first time less than a month ago and I've already made them twice! I am very happy to have started to do this recipe, I think it'll be a staple for us. Especially as I can just freeze them and pull out meatballs as I need them. You could also use other ground meats in this, but chicken is the easiest to get here.

Ingredients:

1/2 kilo (approx 1 pound) Chicken mince (ground chicken/chicken keema)
1 egg
Whole wheat bread crumbs (I crumble up four slices of atta bread.)
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 3 chopped garlic cloves
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
Few dashes black pepper
Dashes of salt to taste
Assorted herbs. I used oregano, celery seeds, parsley, basil.
Whole wheat flour
Cooking oil

Directions:

Mix chicken, egg, spices and herbs.

Then knead in bread combs until it's a good consistency.

Take a teaspoon and make meatballs by scooping out a teaspoon, leveling it out, then combine it with another one, so that a meatball will end up being two teaspoons of meat mixture.

I didn't start taking photos until I was already starting to make the meatballs. See how I have the teaspoon full of meat? That will be half a meatball.

Roll briefly in the flour, set aside. (This is not strictly necessary, but it makes them look nice and uniform.)

atta flour
Keep going until you have done all the meatballs.


Heat up oil in a kerahi or pan.


Use a slotted spoon to put a layer of meatballs into the oil.


Turn them until nicely browned. Continue until all the meatballs are cooked.


Enjoy or store in the freezer and microwave them when needed!
