Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to prepare the meatballs.


  1. Place the first 8 ingredients in a bowl, season with salt and pepper. Run in the blender at medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes. Make balls, dip them in some additional flour and keep aside.
  2. Pour oil in a pan and heat (it should not be smoking). As soon as the oil becomes hot, add onions and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add curry and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add flour, mix everything and pour in the hot chicken broth. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over low heat for 5 to 6 minutes.
  4. Add the meatballs, raisins, and season to taste.
  5. Simmer over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes and serve with grated coconut on top.
