Gameday. Potluck or Everyday Protein. This is an easy recipe for meatballs. Loaded with fresh herbs and spices which are so good for you.

This recipe stores well in your refrigerator or freezer both cooked or uncooked. For those busy weekdays when you are in a rush, so you can spend time working, working out or playing instead or ordering yet another greasy takeout.

Ingredients for the Meatballs

(makes about 30-40 meatballs)

  • 2lb Minced Beef, Chicken, Turkey - really meat of your choice
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic 
  • 1 tbsp garam masala powder. (I make my own but you "must" get something like this. It makes a world of difference!) 
  • 1 tbsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2-3 finely chopped green chillies
  • About 1 cup washed and chopped Cilantro
  • salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


I wash my minced meat and let it drain properly to dry. 

Mix all of the ingredients and make 2'' size meatballs. If touching meat, grosses you out feel free to wear latex gloves or use a small ice cream scoop.

You can either save these in freezer for a week or so. But I usually cook them and save the cooked ones. 

Cook for about 10-12 minutes in a 450F oven on a roaster or cookie sheet. 

Eat with a side of roasted veggies or salads.
