For the Meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground turkey (preferably the fattier grind or you may need to add a few tablespoons of oil)
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • For the Apple Chutney
  • 3 medium (tart) apples, diced
  • 1/2 handful raisins
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons mango chutney (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


For the Meatballs:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  3. In a large bowl, combine all the turkey meatball ingredients. Use your hands, or a cookie scoop, to portion into balls (I made little tiny ones). Bake until the meatballs are cooked through, about 15-20 minutes, depending on the size.

For the Apple Chutney:

  1. Combine all ingredients into a medium sauce pot. Cover with a lid, slightly ajar, and stir occasionally, over medium-high heat, until the apples have softened, about 6-8 minutes.
  2. Remove the lid and let some of the liquid evaporate and reduce (if it hasn’t already). Taste and adjust for seasoning.
  3. Use a tater masher to mash up the apples into a chunky chutney (not pureed applesauce).

Use the chutney like a condiment for the meatballs–it’s not a side dish.
