Steamed Sesame Chicken balls.

I've been thinking about what to do with chicken mince for a while. So tonight, I came up with these.

Sesame Chicken Balls:

500 grams good quality chicken mince
a cup of finely chopped broccolli
a grated carrot
an egg
1/4 cup sesame seeds
3 garlic cloves, minced
a bowl of white rice

Mix everything except the white rice in a bowl until combined. Roll into balls and then roll in the rice to cover. Place in a steamer that has been lined with lettuce/cabbage/silverbeet over boiling water and steam for 30 minutes. Serve with honey soy dipping sauce.

This made too many for us, so I popped some assembled but not cooked into the freezer for a rainy day.

These sound positively scrumptious!
I have been following your recipes for a while now and they all sound pretty good, but this one has me hooked. I am putting it on the menu for next week.

One question though, was 30 of steaming enough to fully cook the rice? Or do you pre-cook it first?

Hi Ingrid :)
30 Minutes over a "rolling boil" was definitely enough to cook the rice as well as the chicken and vegetables. It wasn't pre-cooked.
