Process chicken until mixture is soft. Transfer processed chicken to a large bowl and stir in chopped onion, garlic and beaten egg. On a separate bowl combine bread crumbs with ginger, cumin, curry, salt and pepper and stir into the chicken.
Take small portions of the chicken mixture with your hands and form small 1 in. (2 cm) balls. Flour chicken balls and transfer them to a dish. Microwave at medium-high, 70 % for 6 minutes, turning every 2 minutes. Remove from the micro and repeat with the remaining chicken balls. Cooking chicken balls first in the micro helps them to maintain their shape afterwards in the skillet.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil with half of the paprika in a skillet. Fry half of the chicken balls and cook them for 3 - 5 minutes approximately. Remove appetizers from the skillet and keep them warm. Repeat with the remaining chicken balls, oil and paprika.
Serve warm with Cucumber Dip.
