  • 500 gms pork mince
  • 1 tbsp coriander chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1/8 cup fish sauce

Peanut sauce

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp coriander chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1/8 cup fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 red chilly dried and chopped
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ cup coconut cream


  1. To make the pork meatballs, put the minced meat, garlic paste, chopped coriander and fish sauce in a big bowl.
  2. Knead well and make balls the size of a walnut. Keep them aside.

  3. In the meantime, prepare the peanut sauce.
  4. Put the vegetable oil, garlic and ginger pastes and the chopped chilly in a small pot and sauté for a minute.
  5. Add the peanut butter, fish sauce, brown sugar and coconut cream. Mix well and cook on a low flame for a few minutes, or until it thickens.
  6. Add the remaining chopped coriander, mix and put the fire off.

  7. Fry the meatballs in hot vegetable oil for a few minutes. When cooked through, put them on a plate covered with kitchen paper to drain the excess oil.
