Chicken and Spinach Meatball Curry

    55 min

    An easy peasy recipe that results in moreish chicken and spinach bite-sized balls, great for dipping. I came up with this recipe when all I had in the freezer was a packet of frozen spinach and a packet of chicken mince. Incredibly simple, but now a favourite in our house.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I used coconut cream instead of coconut milk because it is what I had. It worked fine,just thicker and creamier. The paste I used was "Red curry".  -  17 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I added a tsp of vegie spice to the mince mix, some frozen peas (as I didn't have frozen spinach) as well as some fresh spinch, and half an onion and instead of frying I put the mixture into rice paper rolls and steamed above the rice. For the sauce I used a little madras curry paste (I LOVE Patiks) and some coconut milk. Delish!  -  07 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Used different ingredients. I used pork mince because it was a bit cheaper. And frexh silverbeet also because its cheaper, but not too much because you end up with mince instead of balls! So maybe a little bit of breadcrumbs too to hold it all together, not too much though.  -  22 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
