Get the Chicken mince ready.chicken keema balls 1

You can either buy it as chicken mince from the store or get the boneless chicken pieces. I have got the chicken breast pieces and chopped them finely first. washed and rinsed. Then little at a time, gave it a pulse shot in my mixer to mince it.
Take a bowl, add the chicken mince,  put in all the ingredients together and mix well.chicken keema balls 3

watch the video for better understanding. Need not add any flour for binding. Chicken mince is good enough. In case you feel you need a binder or could not make stiff balls of it, add a tbsp of rice powder or corn flour to it and mix.

Make small sized balls

and deep fry it until golden brown. I have shallow fried in simmer so that chicken gets enough time to get cooked. keep rolling so that its evenly brown on all sides.
