Chicken Meatball Curry (+playlist)

Meatballs are one of my favourite. I used to buy from the shop and cook them for my kids.I now regret for doing that. One thing was I havent had any idea of making them and easy to buy them .There is a huge differance when you make them. The main advantage is you exactly know whats in it. There are no colours and preservertives. That means chemical free. In making meat balls and sausages there is a standard amount of fat included. When you make it by your self you can buy the best part of the meat and mince it. Then you are 100% sure about the fat quantity that you are going to consume.
When you make chicken meat balls you can add any herb or spice that you like. When you cook it in a gravy the taste goes through the meat balls and make them more nicer and lighter too.
You can grill, BBQ or bake them too for a change. I selected chicken thighs as it has more flavour. You can use any part to select the meat.
