I came up with this recipe when all I had in the freezer was a packet of frozen spinach and a packet of chicken mince. Incredibly simple, but now a favorite in our house.

Serves: 4 

  • 500gms chicken mince
  • 1 packet of frozen spinach (250gms)
  • 1 egg
  • half cup (60g) of flour
  • 2 tbsp of oil
  • half a jar of curry paste of your choice
  • 1 can (400ml) of coconut milk
  • 1 tspn chicken stock

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. In a bowl, mix thawed spinach, egg and chicken mince and mix. Roll into small balls and dip in flour.
  2. Heat oil in frying pan and brown balls.
  3. Remove balls from pan and cook curry paste for approx. 2 minutes and then stir in coconut milk and chicken stock.
  4. Add balls back into sauce mixture, simmer with lid on for approx. 30 mins.
  5. Serve with rice.

Altered ingredient amounts. I used coconut cream instead of coconut milk because it is what I had. It worked fine,just thicker and creamier. The paste I used was "Red curry". - 17 Jul 2009


Altered ingredient amounts. I added a tsp of vegie spice to the mince mix, some frozen peas (as I didn't have frozen spinach) as well as some fresh spinch, and half an onion and instead of frying I put the mixture into rice paper rolls and steamed above the rice. For the sauce I used a little madras curry paste (I LOVE Patiks) and some coconut milk. Delish! - 07 Apr 2010


Used different ingredients. I used pork mince because it was a bit cheaper. And frexh silverbeet also because its cheaper, but not too much because you end up with mince instead of balls! So maybe a little bit of breadcrumbs too to hold it all together, not too much though. - 22 Jun 2009
