Chicken Kheema balls in Indo-Chinese Gravy

Like always...I overestimated how much Chicken Kheema (Ground Chicken) I would need for the Kabobs that I made for a party (http://www.my-kitchens-aroma.blogspot.com/2012/12/chicken.html) and bought like 3 lbs of it!! I had to use up the leftover Kheema...and well ....make up a yummy Lunch for the weekend. I made these delicious "Indo-Chinese Style" Curry/Gravy with Chicken Meat balls.The Spicy-Tangy Curry with the Chicken balls was a tasty lunch deal!
 "E" loves the meat balls and he had them with .any .guesses...YES.. his favorite NAAN!!

Chicken Kheema balls--
1lb minced chicken/kheema
1 medium onion chopped finely
1tsp ginger garlic paste
1tbsp chopped cilantro
2tsp Roasted sesame seeds
2tsp Kitchen King masala
1tsp Sambal Olek paste
1tsp Ketchup
2tsp chili powder
1/4tsp turmeric
1tsp cumin-coriander powder
1/4tsp black pepper
1 egg salt to taste
Oil for pan frying the Chicken balls
oil to brush hands

For gravy:
1/2 cup thinly sliced Green,Red and Yellow Peppers each
1 Cup thinly sliced onion
2 tsp finely chopped garlic
1/2tsp ginger
2tbsp Ketchup
2tbsp Hot and sweet sauce
1tbsp Soy sauce
2tsp All purpose flour/maida(I ran out of corn flour)
1/2tsp Black pepper
1/2tsp Red chili powder(add more for spicier taste)
salt (in needed,Soy sauce is  salty)

1)Gently mix together all the above ingredients for Meal balls.Do not over mix....otherwise the kheema balls come out tougher and chewy.Just mix till everything is combined well.
2) Brush  hands with oil. Keep a non stick pan with little oil on medium heat.
3) Take small amount of kheema mixture and roll into balls.Place the balls on the hot pan.Once they brown from one side, turn them.Keep a lid for 2 mins for them to cook.Turn from oil sides to brown them slightly. Drain well on paper towel.

 4) Heat 2 tsp oil. Fry the veggies in the oil along with ginger-garlic. Add 1/2tsp oil to the center of the pan, add the all purpose flour.Fry the flour in oil by stirring it for few seconds. Add water to the pan and add the sauces.
5) Add the rest of the spices and cook the Garvy till slightly thickened.
6) Just before serving, place the Chicken balls in the serving bowl and pour the curry on top.
Serve Hot with Rice or Rotis/Naan if you like!!
