Curry Kale Balls

1) Pulse the following in a food processor until evenly ground but stop before it gets gummy:

  • 1 t. curry powder, Madras style, hot
  • 1 cup pistachios, shelled, I prefer roasted and salted
  • zest from 1 lemon

2) Add and process until evenly chopped and mixed:

  • 1 cup chopped kale, Dino/Tuscan type, no stems

3) Add these last and run the processor until a soft dough starts to collect. It will still be crumbly but will hold together.

  • 8 medjool dates, pitted

4) Roll 12-14 balls between your palms then roll them in 1/4 cup pistachios, crushed fine, to coat.

Depending on how big you like your balls, you’ll get around a dozen. Keep refrigerated until needed.

NOTE: 1 teaspoon of hot Madras curry powder will give you a very slight heat in your throat after you swallow. If you want them hotter, add more but I wouldn’t go over 1 tablespoon unless you have big balls.
