How to make Mutton Keema Balls?

Mutton Kola Urundai | Keema Balls Recipe | with step by step description, photos & video. The recipe I share here with you has slight variations from the traditional recipe. In the traditional recipe, I found them using poppy seeds, which are banned in some countries. So the recipe I am sharing here does not contain poppy seeds. But no doubt the balls turned out super delicious. The kola urundai was so soft and tasted so flavorful. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

We prepare a masala by dry roasting some spices which make this dish super aromatic. As used in the authentic recipe, I am using coconut in a small amount while dry roasting the spices.

We use roasted gram flour/Fried Gram Flour for this recipe, known as Pottu Kadalai in Tamil. This helps in binding the Kola urundai and giving it a stiff round shape. It makes it easier to make crack-free round balls. By using this ingredient, it also helps in frying the kheema balls without breaking them. It acts as a binding agent.
