  • Mutton 500 grams (1 lb) boneless minced
  • Fennel 2 tsp
  • Red chilies 10
  • Roasted split chick peas 1½ cup
  • Cinnamon 1 cm stick
  • Cloves 1
  • Coconut 1 cup
  • Pearl onions 1 cup
  • Curry leaves – chopped


  1. Wash the minced mutton and drain all the water from it
  2. Grind fennel seeds, roasted split chick peas, red chilies, cinnamon, and cloves into fine powder
  3. Grind the coconut into paste and then add the pearl onions and grind again
  4. Mix the meat, powder, and paste with ½ tsp red chili powder, ½ tsp coriander powder, 2 pinches turmeric powder, salt, curry leaves. Mix well and make into 2 inch diameter balls
  5. Fry the meatballs in oil till golden brown

Note 1: The meatballs don’t absorb oil when fried, so a lot of oil is not needed to fry
Note 2: Don’t add water when making the paste or else the meatballs will break up when frying
