Heat about 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and saute onions until soft, for a minute.
Then add green chilies, ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute or two until raw smell of ginger dissipates.
Let the mixture cool
To this add all the spices, egg, cilantro, scallions and mix well.
Add ground chicken, breadcrumbs to the mixture and mix until well combined.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Oil a large baking tray and keep aside.
Apply some oil to hand, take some chicken mixture, roll into a 1 ½ - 2” diameter ball and place in the baking sheet.
Make rest of the kofta (meatballs) similarly and it yields 22 - 24 meatballs.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.
Switch to broil mode and broil for 3 minutes.
Turn off the oven and let the kofta sit in the oven for another couple of minutes.
Check if the kofta are cooked. When cut in half, juices should run clear or should read 150 - 165 F on a kitchen thermometer.
Remove from oven and serve hot as an appetizer, or with some grilled vegetables for a meal.
