Day 1: Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
Pour the oil into a nonstick 10-inch skillet and heat to 400° over high heat, about 4 minutes.
Add the onions and ginger, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix, and stir.
Saute until the onions become translucent and tender; let cool.
Combine the onions and ginger with the remaining ingredients, including the remaining seasoning mix, in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
Refrigerate overnight.
Day 2: Preheat a nonstick 10-inch skillet over high heat to 400°, about 4 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350°.
With a teaspoon form the turkey mixture into small balls.
Brown the Meat balls, a few at a time, in the skillet, then reshape any that fall apart.
Coat a baking pan large enough to hold all the meatballs with vegetable oil spray, and place the meatballs in it.
Bake until done, about 30 minutes.
