Tomato Curry Turkey Meatballs

tomatocurryturkeymeatballs.jpgI am a big fan of curry. My mother cooked with it a lot when I was little. Curried chicken with potatoes and carrots were one of my favorite dishes. I know it is either a love/hate spice with many people. For the curry lovers out there, you will probably be interested to know that curry powder holds a lot of health benefits. It is said that it may help prevent cancer, heart disease and high cholesterol. It helps in aiding with digestion and also improves brain function. This makes me love it even more.

It is a bit too spicy for my daughter so I don’t often cook with it, but tonight mommy flew solo & was feeling dangerous.
I chose to make porcupine meatballs in a tomato curry sauce for my dinner alone tonight.

Ingredients:
20 oz of ground turkey
1/2 cup of uncooked rice
1 egg
1 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp of Kosher salt

1 8oz can of tomato sauce
1 6oz can of tomato paste
3/4 cup water
2 tbsp of curry powder
2 tsp of brown sugar
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp of pepper

Directions:
In a mixing bowl, combine tomato sauce, tomato paste, 1/2 cup of water. curry powder, cumin, ground ginger, pepper & sugar & stir well. In a separate bowl combine turkey, rice, garlic, egg, salt. Add a 1/4 cup of the tomato sauce mixture to the meat. Form 1 1/2 inch meatballs & place in a large frying pan. Add another 1/4 cup of water to your sauce and stir well. Pour the sauce over meatballs. Heat until bubbling. Reduce heat to a simmer & cover. Cook for about 45 minutes. Cook times may vary.
