1 sprig curry leaves, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
3 tablespoon coriander leaves, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 egg

Other Ingredients

2 tablespoon Indian sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds
3 sprigs curry leaves
10 dried red chillies, deseeded, chopped
1.5 cup onions, sliced
2 tablespoon garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
2 teaspoon black pepper powder
1 tablespoon coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lime juice


Take a bowl and add in all the ingredients listed for meatballs / kaima. Mix everything well. Make into small bite-sized balls. Wet your hands while making the balls. Steam the balls in a steamer for 10 minutes. After steaming, remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Heat oil in a pan and add in the fennel seeds, curry leaves and the dried red chillies. I have deseeded the chillies and chopped them. Add in the sliced onions and the garlic. Saute for a few minutes till the onions are soft. Add in the salt along with the onions so the onions will cook fast. Add in the turmeric powder and sauté for a few seconds.

Add in the steamed kaima / meat ball, cumin powder and the black pepper powder. Saute for a few minutes. Finally add in the coriander leaves and lime juice. Remove from heat. Do not cook for long after adding the lime juice.
