  • 1 lb Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1/3 C Red Onion minced
  • 1/3 C Fresh Cilantro minced
  • 1/2 C Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tbsp Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic Paste
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika


  • In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients together and mix by hand until thoroughly combined.
  • Using roughly 2 teaspoons of the mixture, roll into small balls until all the mixture has been used.
  • In a large, high-sided skillet, heat around 2 inches of oil over medium heat. Add the meatballs, working in batches, frying until cooked through, turning occasionally, around 10 minutes.
  • Remove cooked meatballs and place on a paper towel to drain. Skewer with toothpicks and serve with a dipping sauce of choice on the side.
