1 lb ground chicken

1 1/2 onion diced

1 tomato

2 tbspn vegetable oil

1 tspn salt

1 tspn garam masala

1 tspn laal mirch

1 heaping tspn garlic paste

1-2 green chili peppers


Fry 1 diced onion in pot on medium high heat until golden-brown

Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the ground beef, 1/2 a diced onion, 1/2 tspn salt, 1/2 tspn garam masala, 1/2 tspn laal mirch. Incorporate using your clean hands (or wear gloves). ADDITION: if you prefer upping the heat factor-chop up 1-2 green chili peppers into the meat mixture

Make meatballs (should make about 10-12)

Onions should now be a golden brown in the pot, add one diced tomato. Stir well. Add the other half of : salt, garam masala and laal mirch. Add in 1 healing tspn of garlic paste. Stir well. Add in 1/3cup water and stir

Once the tomatoes have softened, place the meatballs very gently into the pot. DO NOT STIR

Place the lid on the pot and set to medium heat and let it cook for 10 minutes

After 10 minutes have passed- uncover and gently stir/turn meatballs. At this point you can add more water if you want more shorba (LOL?!) – if you like your curries more watery add more water

Cook for another 10 minutes

Serve with rice, roti or naan. Sometimes I just eat my koftai with salads too

Enjoy !
