Turmeric is thought to have anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting properties. Fresh can be hard to come by, so use organic ground.



  • ginger 50g, sliced
  • light chicken stock 1.5 litres
  • spring onions 3, greens and whites separated
  • star anise 2
  • ground turmeric 2-3 tsp

  • Step 1

    Put the sliced ginger, chicken stock, spring onion greens, star anise and turmeric in a large pan. Bring to a simmer and cook with a lid on for 20 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, finely chop the spring onion whites and put in a bowl with the chicken mince, grated ginger, chilli, coriander, 1 tsp of sesame oil, the cornflour and egg white. Season with salt and white pepper then mix well and roll into balls.
