    Nasseh's Note:

    My husband's mom would make this for me while I was in Morocco. After the first time I tried to figure out what she put in it to make them so good. Mine were ok but not wonderful like hers. So the next time I was there I paid close attention when she made them.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Mix parsley, onion, & spices with the ground chicken (or turkey). Make sure it is well blended so that the spices are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
    2. 2
      Make 1 inch balls flattened to about 1/2 inch thickness.
    3. 3
      Optional: Dip the balls into the flour until coated. (The ones in the picture have been made this way).
    4. 4
      Pour enough oil to just cover the bottom of the frying pan, heat on medium heat.
    5. 5
      Place the balls into the heated oil. Turn frequently so they do not burn on the sides. Cook until they are done all the way through.
    6. 6
      Optional: To eat Moroccan style, use pieces of a thick bread to break off chunks of meatball. Pop into mouth & enjoy. (No utensils).

      Utterly delish! The flavourings were very subtle and quite beautiful. Cooked this for friends doing weight watchers and everyone had seconds, saying they were the best meatballs they’d ever had- no one could believe they were also so healthy. BIG thank you! We are having this again this week. I cooked these dipped in egg, rolled in whole wheat breadcrumbs and baked in the oven at 325F for 25 mins. Which helped “healthy� it up a lot! We ate this served with whole wheat spaghetti, fresh tomato marinara sauce, and salad.

      We eat a lot of ground chicken so I was looking for something different. I did put a little less cumin than the recipe called for, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Rolled in flour and baked on a greased cookie sheet at 350f for about 30 minutes. Served with sour cream on the side. DH said, "very tasty!" Oh, and we really enjoyed the mix of paprika and cumin. Thanks for posting!

      Went perfect with our Mediterranean style tapas buffet we had at a dinner party. I did need to add a bit more flour to hold them together, but all came out great! I added fresh parsley & upped the onion amount (love grated onion too). Added a touch of garam masala & they were so yummy! I chose to bake instead of fry. I used the few leftovers & added them to a lentil based spaghetti sauce & served over pasta. Thank you for a yummy recipe!
