A great-tasting, lean meatball. I serve mine with pita bread, hummus, and a crispy salad.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Combine turkey, onion, bread crumbs, egg, curry powder, salt, cumin, ginger, and cinnamon together in a bowl using your hands; form into about 20 balls.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook meatballs, working in batches, in hot oil until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer browned meatballs to a baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Pretty good but needed sweetness. I served it with apple jelly but if I made it again I d try cranberry jelly or a chutney. It s a good use for that ground turkey you bought on sale and has been languishing in your freezer though. Read More

Delicious! I took the suggestion of others and used a whole Tablespoon of curry powder. These gave them a strong curry flavor which I like. I also made these paleo-friendly by omitting the breadcrumbs and adding 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1 Tbs coconut flour. They came out moist and awesome! Read More

Easy! served with Hungarian cucumber salad from this site and with hummus and Naan bread. My 4 year old even ate it and he doesn't like meat. Might add a little more curry next time but it was great. Read More

I couldn't quit eating them. Added grated zuchinni to make them moist just because I always do. Curry flavor is incredible. Read More

My husband gives these meatballs 5 stars because he's not a fan of ground turkey but he loved these!! I added red curry paste and cayenne pepper but it still wasn't spicy enough for us! My son didn't appreciate the curry taste at all. I will definitely make these again for hubby and myself and give the kiddo mac and cheese. Read More

My husband loved them! He is sensitive to gluten so I substituted oatmeal for the bread crumbs. They are quick and simple! Read More
