Chicken Meatballs

Step 1:

 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Step 2:

Add the chicken or turkey, egg, bread crumbs, and a pinch each of salt and pepper to a bowl. Coat your hands with a bit of olive oil, and roll the meat into tablespoon size balls (will make 15-20 meatballs), placing them on the prepared baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the meatballs are crisp and cooked through

Curry Sauce

Step 3:

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook 5 minutes or until fragrant. Add the garlic and ginger, cooking another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4:

Stir in the garam masala, curry powder, turmeric latte mix, cinnamon, and cayenne and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.


Step 5:

Add the tomato paste, coconut milk, and 1/2 cup water. Stir to combine, bring the sauce to a boil, cook 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Stir in the yogurt and butter. Add the meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro.

Turmeric Butter Chicken

Our Turmeric

The scope of benefits we can derive from a regular intake of turmeric is largely dependent on the quality of the product itself.

We’ve sourced all of our turmeric from Grenera Organics, where the plant is grown and harvested under ideal conditions, within their 300 acres of farmland.

Not only does this ensure that our products feature turmeric that has been planted, cultivated and harvested according to organic practices, but it also means that the beneficial aspects of the rhizomes are all the more potent. More specifically, Grenera Organics’ turmeric powder comprises between 4-7% curcumin – a high concentration for the turmeric rhizome, which often comprises around 3% curcumin.

We’ve developed a guide on the many uses and benefits of Turmeric to further explain why we use the best Turmeric in our natural remedies like our Golden Milk Latte and Turmeric Relief Cream
