Curried Turkey Meatballs

This is a staple for us during the winter months. Its savory and spicy to warm you up on a chilly winters night. Since we have moved out to the country,nights see chillier and snowier than I can ever remember but twice as beautiful.

1 lb ground turkey
2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp minced ginger
3 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 egg or 1 peeled and shredded zucchini(water squeezed out)
1/2 tsp celtic grey sea salt

In a bowl mix all above ingredients and form into golf size balls. Allow them to chill and set while you make the sauce.


3 shallots,minced
3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
1 large can of eden diced tomatoes
1/4 cup of water, more as needed (depending on how thick you like you sauce).
1 inch piece of cinnamon stick
1 tbsp minced ginger
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp red chili flakes (leave out for a milder version)
2 tsp ground corriander
1 tsp  ground cumin
1/2 tsp celtic grey sea salt
1/2 tsp lemon juice
chopped cilantro for garnish.

In a wok over medium heat add oil, cinnamon stick and shallots, saute until the onions are brown and soft. Add garlic and saute for another minute, add ginger. Then add all the dry spices and cook stirring for 1 minute until the onions are coated. Add tomatoes, bring to a boil. Add meatballs and simmer covered for 20 minutes making sure to turn the meatballs every few minutes. Add lemon and Cilantro, serve over rice. Have with mango achar or lime pickle for a kick, in the pants!!
