Wash the mutton keema/kothu kari/minced meat thoroughly with water 2-3 times and drain the water completely.

Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt to the keema.

The minced mutton will start to release water, let the mutton cook in the same water. Stir in between to avoid any burning of food.

The water will evaporate and the minced meat/keema would have cooked. Now switch off the stove.

Transfer the ground meat to a bowl. Add 3-4 tbsp of roasted gram powder/pottukadalai to the ground meat.

Now add 1 small finely chopped onion, curry leaves to the bowl.

Mix everything really well until well combined. Make sure there is no moisture left, if there is moisture after mixing the meat then add little more of roasted gram powder/pottukadalai maavu and mix well. Adjust the salt level at this stage.

Make small balls as shown and keep it ready for frying.

Heat oil in a kadai to fry the meat balls.When the oil is hot enough add the meat balls slowly to the oil.
