  • I do all this in my blender. For a rougher consistency, or for those not in a hurry like I always am!, chop and mix by hand.
  • Put roughly torn bread and enough milk to just cover in blender, soak for 1-2 minutes and then blend.
  • Add egg, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard or chilli and blend again. When you have a nice mush, add the chicken mince and coriander, and blend just enough so mixture is well combined.
  • Roll into small balls and fry - I do this in my non stick pan but you could do in a small amount of oil. This quantity makes about 30 balls. Serve with tsatsiki and/or sweet chilli sauce.
