I love meatballs but when i'm sick of the usual Italian style meatballs in a tomato sauce i love giving them an Asian twist. Ground Pork might prove hard to find so i make my own by grinding pork cubes in my blender. 

What You'll Need 

Meatballs 

  • 500g Ground Pork or Chicken
  • 1 Cup Fresh Coriander

  • Form the mixture into golf sized balls 

Let's Get Cooking - 20 Minutes 

  • In a pot, heat cooking oil. Sauté your onions until cooked. Add your can of tomatoes, curry paste and tomato paste
