Came across this recipe some time back in ‘Cook’s Book’ in facebook, liked very much, made some modifications according to my taste and ingredient availability in India and the end result is fantastic.

  • 1 large onion – chopped
  • 1 carrot – chopped
  • Garlic cloves – 6, minced

  • Tomato – 1, chopped
  • Tomato Sauce – 1 tbsp
  • Olive Oil – 1 tbsp
  • Red Chilli Flakes – 1 tsp
  • Fragrant Rice – a handful

Fry the chicken meatball till golden brown and keep aside.

Add olive oil in a pan. Add the chopped onion and carrot and saute lightly.

Add the garlic, chopped tomatoes and green chilli, cook until fragrant.

Add the tomato sauce and chicken stock to the vegetable mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Reduce to a simmer and season the broth with the salt, pepper and red chilli flakes. Add the rice and the meatballs one at a time.
