Recipe of the day: Garlic Chicken Cheese balls

For the chicken mixture


Boneless chicken – 250 gram (ground in a food processor)

White pepper powder – 1 tsp (use ½ tsp black pepper powder if you don’t have white pepper)

Coriander leaves – 2 tsp

Butter – 2 tbsp

Garlic (finely chopped) – 1 tbsp

Red chilli flakes – ¾ tsp

Oregano – ½ tsp

Mozzarella cheese (shredded) – ¼ cup (little more if you want it more cheesy)

Salt – to taste


In a bowl combine together ground chicken, white pepper powder, coriander leaves and salt.

Heat butter in a pan over low flame, add chopped garlic, red chilli flakes and oregano and saute for few seconds, till a nice smell appear (check not to burn). Remove it from the flame and leave it to cool for about 2 – 3 minutes. Add this to the ground chicken mixture and combine well. Make 8 – 10 balls out of this mixture.

Take one of the chicken ball and press it lightly in the palm, add little mozzarella cheese at the center and cover it with the chicken mixture and roll it again to a ball. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken balls.
