Feta Chicken Balls (RAMADAN SAVOURY)

Thursday, May 19, 2016






INGREDIENTS 

1 Kg Chicken Fillet - cubed
2 Tb Portuguese Spice
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp White Pepper
1 Tb Crushed Garlic
2 Tb Lemon Juice
1-2 Chopped Green Chillies

2 cups Boiled Spaghetti - chopped
2 rounds Feta Cheese - cubed small
1 bunch Fresh coriander

WHITE SAUCE

30g Butter
40g Flour
30 ml Milk

GARNISH

1 egg - beaten
Corn Flour
Breadcrumbs

METHOD


  1. Marinate the chicken and cook till done (the marinate should exclude the spaghetti, feta and coriander).
  2. Set aside and allow to cool.
  3. In a separate saucepan make the white sauce, boil on medium head and whisk till smooth and thick,
  4. With a teaspoon blend together chicken, feta, coriander,spaghetti and white sauce, if you're not one to shy away from getting your hands dirty get in there and sqeesh the mix together so everything combines well.
  5. Moisten your clean hands with water, make golf-ball sized balls - like you would make with meat balls only a bit smaller.
  6. On a tray lightly dust cornflour over, so when you place the balls you've made on it than you would dust some more cornflour over instead of having to turn them over.
  7. Once all your meatballs have been made, go on to dip in your beaten egg and coat with breadcrumbs - I prefer the cornflakes crumbs because they fry crisper and also the golden colour is beautiful. 
  8.  We added small squewers and made them like fried pops!
  9. Can be frozen or if you're making fresh keep in the fridge for around 4 hours so it firms up.
  10. Deep fry on medium heat till golden and serve with lemon juice and chutney.

  1. What a fab idea Zainab! They don't look very hard to make and I love cheese! Thinking of making different snacks for Iftaar is always a struggle. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. These sound absolutely delicious and with the Green Chiles �� I think I would be in food coma. My only question is, should be chicken be cubed or minced/ground? For typical meatballs we utilize a ground meat? I'm assuming the white sauce and spaghetti will act similarly to the egg and breadcrumbs for a typical meatball in ensuring that the mixture is able to be stay together appropriately. Would you be able to clarify for me, because I'm dying to make these!

      Thanks for sharing!

    2. Aishah - Insha-Allah I hope you do :)

      American Hijabi - cubed or mince will do, we usually use mince as well. If you cube the chicken it should be small cubes. Yes it does. You will had to do both the white sauce and spaghetti with the egg and breadcrumbs after you have mixed it well. I hope this helps :)

    1. It is a mix found in South Africa, check your dry spice section in the super market. If you cannot find it check for any exotic spice just to bring some flavour to the chicken. :)

    1. Sure go ahead! I know some of the spices I use cannot be found internationally so always feel free to substitute it with either another similar spice or whatever you may prefer :)
