Chilli Chicken Meatballs

These chilli chicken meatballs were a result of being snowed in, while feeling homesick, anxious, and generally nostalgic.

Basically a riff of the more traditional chilli chicken, this recipe takes away all the grease and fuss of batter coating and deep frying the chicken. It beats almost anything that you might try named similar in your regular US Indian restaurant. But you probably knew that!
