Chicken and Mint Meatballs with Coconut Rice



I love a fragrant bowl of curry or a steaming cup of chai. They are full of intoxicating spices that are popular in Indian, Thai, and Malaysian cuisine. Just a brief smell of their aroma draws me in.

Almost anytime I go out to eat, my first pick is to a restaurant serving one of these cuisines. I can’t get enough of it!

The delicious aroma and flavor of these dishes is due to the delightful spices used, such as cardamon, clove, allspice and cinnamon.


My infatuation with these spices has me cooking with them frequently at home. A new favorite dish at my house is chicken mint meatballs on a bed of coconut rice infused with various spices.

None of my unsuspecting kids guessed the secret ingredient… chicken liver.
