These chicken balls were made from left over roasted chicken which i minced in the blender giving it a totally difference taste, appearance and texture.
2 cups of cooked chicken, can be any left over chicken either roasted, boiled, tandoori or barbcued
1 teaspoon each of grated ginger, and chopped coriander and mint leaves
1 egg, beaten
a pinch of cumin powder, dry amchoor powder (dry mango powder), chilli flakes and garam masala powder.
salt, pepper and crushed green chillies to taste
oil for deep frying and a bit of cornflour if needed (i did not use)
METHOD: Remove excess oil or gravy from the chicken and put into a blender ( i used my magic bullet) and mince till fine. Add the herbs, spices and seasoning. Add the egg and leave the mixture in the fridge for an hour. It should firm up a bit. Shape into balls, deep fry in hot oil till goldn brown. Serve with chutney of your choice.
NITU DIDI TIP: Do remove all the gravy from the chicken or else you will not be able to shape them or fry them well, If you still find it dificult to shape into balls do add a little bit of corn flour.
