Peel and chop the onion and 2 cloves of the the garlic and lightly fry in a pan with a little oil. Once cooked, stir in the tomatoes which should be washed, cut and have the seeds removed. Lightly fry and add the sugar, oregano and thyme and season with salt and pepper. Stir the sauce with a wooden spoon. Puree the sauce in a blender and strain it if necessary.
Rinse out the blender and add the remaining garlic, the diced chicken, the breadcrumbs, a beaten egg, parsley, curry, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend the mixture and put in the refrigerator to firm up.
When it is cold, shape balls from the mixture of about 50g each and push a skewer into each ball. Flatten them a little so that they look like lollipops and cook them in a frying pan in the remaining olive oil.
Serve with the tomato sauce.
You could also coat the lollipops in sesame seeds before cooking.
