Back after long - Chicken Meatballs in chilli garlic sauce

Hello everyone....I am back to doing what i love doing after a long time. Not that I have not been cooking ...just that the past one month has been so busy with all the festivities in the air..Durga Puja, Lakshmi Puja, my lill doll's (niece) annaprashan , Diwali , Bhai dooj..there has been a lot of food involved!!!! So today after a long hiatus I decided to make something special at home and treat the husband to a good home cooked meal. With limited groceries available at home ( been too lazy to go shopping too ) I decided to make a Chinese lunch. A simple fare of egg fried rice and Chicken Meatballs in Chili garlic sauce...for a nippy winter afternoon this would be wonderful.

Ingredients :

Red chili sauce - 1 tsp

Tomato ketchup - 1 tsp

Black pepper - 1 tsp

Worcestershire sauce - 1/2 tsp

Egg white - 1

Salt  - to taste

Cornflour - 1tbsp

Refined oil - for frying


Mix everything together and let the marinated chicken rest for half hour.In a deep pan add oil , once the oil is heated , make small balls of the mince and fry till golden brown in colour.
Drain on a kitchen towel and keep aside .

For the sauce:

Onion - 1 large ( finely chopped )

Ginger - 1 tbsp ( finely chopped)

Garlic - 1 tbsp (finely chopped )

Green chillies - 2-3 nos

Red chili sauce - 1tbsp

Soya sauce - 1 tbsp

Vinegar - 1tsp

Sugar - a pinch

Cornflour - 1tbsp dissolved in a cup of cold water

Refined oil - 1

Coriander leaves - a handful shredded for garnish

Method :

In a nonstick pan add the oil. Next tip in the ginger - garlic - onion - green chillies and fry till brown in color. Once done add in all the sauces one by one and fry for a minute.

Add the fried meatballs , mix well with the sauce. Add the cornflour mixture according to the consistency that you want. Remove from heat and garnish with coriander.

Serve hot with steamed rice or with a simple egg fried rice!!!
