In a medium bowl, combine mince, onions, chilli, ginger, garlic, salt, tumeric and garam masala. Using hands, massage and infuse spices through the mince. Portion mince into tablespoon (3cm) sized amounts and roll into meatballs.
In a large non-stick frypan heat oil on a high heat, add meatballs, sear and brown. Lower heat and cook for 5 minutes whilst rotating to cook all sides. Add tomatoes and cook for a further 5-6 minutes or until tomato thickens. Ensure meat is cooked through.
