Butter Chicken Meatballs

How did you Share the Light this Diwali?

After Patak’s twitter party last week, my mouth was left watering for some delicious Indian food! Looking for a healthy recipe to fit the bill, I headed on over to Patak’s new blog called Good Korma (cute right?) and immediately zeroed in on this amazing Butter Chicken Meatball recipe! It’s so so so good! Mild in heat, but big in flavour, these meatballs are a nice twist from the ordinary and make a great meal!

Oil hands lightly and roll mixture into 10 meatballs. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until browned and cooked through. flip at the half way point

in oven

Meanwhile, heat remaining sauce over medium heat in a saucepan until simmering. Stir in meatballs to coat well. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in cilantro.
Serve with basmati rice (my favourite!) and garnish with almonds.

 

Feel free to double the recipe to feed 4, I found one package of Butter Chicken for two was enough, but you can also try the jar versions of Light Butter Chicken or Spicy Butter Chicken.

    These Butter Chicken Meatballs sound different and delicious. With butter, most dishes are delicious. It would make a contrast with hamburger meatballs and be wonderful with rice. Thank you for this recipe.

    I love all the recipes, but I have great difficulty reading the printing on the black background. Maybe I am the only one who feels this but I would love to be able to read all the names of your recipes easily and so dccide which ones I would like to make.-Do not mean to be picky but it is difficult for me to read the captions below your tasty dishes.

    • momvstheboys says:

      so sorry Elva, this is a glitch on my site that I have not been able to figure out. Try refreshing the page, that’s what I do when the grey background happens, it should turn white again. I’ll keep working on the problem

  20. kathy downey says:
