Turmeric Cilantro Meatballs


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients.
  2. Form into meatballs. You can expect to have 25-30 big meatballs, or 40 medium meatballs.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes – 1 hour to allow the flavors to blend together.
  4. To pan fry, heat up 2 tbsp olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat, and fry each side for about 3-5 minutes.
    • To bake, throw them in the oven for 25 minutes at 350.

I recommend serving this with some roasted vegetables and tahdig crispy rice!
