Kola urundai / Mutton keema balls / Minced mutton balls

U guys must be thinking when u read  the title of my post, what .. On Shivrathri ?!! . I know, its Shivrathri last day.. Don think I made it  last day or today, It was sometime back actually. Wanted to post on the same week it was made but somehow missed this. Noticed this shot when i's clearing out my clutter..

Ingredients :

Mutton -- minced --  200 gms
Onion -- medium sized -- 1 no. (chopped)
Shredded coconut -- 1/2 cup
Fennel seeds -- 1 tsp
Cinnamon -- 1/2 in piece
Cloves -- 1 or 2 nos.
Cardamom -- 1 no.
Dahlia / pottukadalai -- 5 tbsp
Dry red chillies -- 5 to 6 nos.
Turmeric powder -- 1/4 tsp
Kasa kasa -- 1 tsp (optional)
Ginger -- 1 in piece
Garlic -- 4 to 5 pods

To mix :

Curry leaves -- 1 sprig
Salt -- to taste

To fry :

Oil -- as needed

Method :

Mince the mutton very finely, u may ask the butcher to make it fine. Else, grind it in the mixie for few minutes without adding water. keep aside. Add all the ingredients to the minced mutton and combine well. Grind this mixture in batches to a very fine paste adding very little water. This might be a tough task grinding mutton and getting a homogeneous paste. But still, do ur best.  ( I couldn't do without adding water since I've a blender ,but somehow managed to get the shape. Will update better pics later...)  Finally add the salt and tear the curry leaves and add to the paste. Mix everything together . Make small lemon sized balls and fry it in the medium hot oil  until they turn golden brown . U may serve as an appetizer ...

Will post the Kola urundai gravy tomorrow..

Happy eating guys !!!
