Kheema balls( meat balls)
Year before last year I was living in Burkina faso. Since meat was very cheap and easily available there,it used to be on the menu almost everyday all three times a day( I can say four times as I used to cook evening snacks with meat like kheema samosa, kheema cutlet, kheema wraps, kheema parota etc.But, Kheema balls had its own high price on the list. Kheema balls were sometimes deep fried in oil, sometimes dropped in the kheema koftha curry, sometimes was just served with any other meal(noodles, pasta, chappathi etc). This recipe is simple, easy and quick
Minced meat 500grams
onions - 1 large
green chillies -4nos
fresh chopped coriander - 1/2 cup
ginger-garlic paste - 2 tbsp
red chilli powder - 2 tsp( heaped)
