  • 500g minced chicken
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Fresh coriander leaves, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the eggs: Ask your little helpers to peel the hard-boiled eggs. Make sure they don’t eat them all before you can use them for the koftas!

  2. Make the kofta mixture: In a large bowl, mix together the minced chicken, chopped onion, garlic, ginger, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, paprika, bread crumbs, and milk. Get your kids to help you mix everything together until well combined.

  3. Form the koftas: Take a small amount of the chicken mixture and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Place a peeled hard-boiled egg in the center and shape the chicken mixture around it to form a ball. Repeat with the remaining eggs and chicken mixture.

  4. Cook the koftas: Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the koftas and cook until they are golden brown on all sides, turning them occasionally to ensure they cook evenly.

  5. Serve: Transfer the cooked koftas to a serving dish and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. You can enjoy them with some yogurt or a light salad on the side.

  • Plain yogurt
  • Cucumber and tomato salad


  • Why did the tomato turn red? Because it saw the salad dressing!
  • What do you call cheese that isn’t yours? Nacho cheese!
