Spiced Chicken Koftas With Lime Pickle
|Skinless boneless chicken||1 Pound, chopped coarsely|
|Ginger root||1 Inch, grated|
|Garam masala||4 Teaspoon|
|Ground turmeric||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
|Chopped fresh coriander||2 Tablespoon (Cilantro)|
|Green bell pepper||1⁄2 , chopped coarsely|
|Fresh green chilies||2 , deseeded|
|Lime pickle||4 Ounce (1 Jar, For Serving)|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm)|
1. Put all the ingredients except the oil and lime pickle into a food processor or blender and process until the mixture is chopped finely. Alternatively, finely chop the chicken, garlic, ginger, (bell) pepper and chillies, and mix together in a bowl with the garam masala, turmeric, coriander (cilantro) and salt.
2. Carefully shape the chicken mixture into 16 small balls.
3. Heat the oil in a Balti pan or wok and fry the koftas for 8-10 minutes, turning them occasionally to ensure they cook evenly. If you cannot fit all the koftas into the pan at once, keep the first batch warm in a low oven while you fry the remaining koftas.
4. Drain the koftas on paper towels and serve hot with lime pickle and a garnish of lemon wedges.
