Chicken Kofta Curry

Recipe by JustJanS

The chicken makes a nice change from the usual lamb mince used to make koftas.

This was lovely, I used 750g chicken breast fillet which I ground in my food processor, skipped the egg and in it's place added about 2Tbs water. As I wanted to cut the cals down slightly I used only 1/2 a can coconut milk and subbed the other 1/2 with chicken stock. A nice change from the usual style Kofta. :)
