You already know from this post that I have an addiction to meatballs. Well even though my aunts’ recipe for American style meatballs is fantastic, I also love different varieties of the mince balls and this recipe is another of my favourites.
This is my Thai version.
Not many people know this but not long after Dominic and I started dating, I was a kitchen assistant in a Thai restaurant. Up until that point I had never tried any Thai food at all. It was a really interesting experience and I got to watch the owner as she made lots of delicious Thai Food. Though the best bit was all the free tasting that I was doing.
Since then I have made lots of Thai curries and sides and have become rather addicted to Thai food.
I tend to serve them as a side dish for when we’re having tapas or with a vegetable Thai curry. Either way, it is delicious and it gives you something different to have while you’re having an evening in.
You can also reduce or increase the spice depending on what your palate is like.

You can use beef mince if you prefer, if you do use beef mince then please add some breadcrumbs to improve the balance.
