Spicy Meatballs

Spicy Meatballs
ingredients makes 24
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 - 2 fresh red chillies, seeded and chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cm (1/2 in) cube shrimp paste
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) coriander seeds
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) cumin seeds
  • 450 g (1 lb) lean minced beef
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) dark soy sauce
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) dark brown sugar
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • a little beaten egg
  • oil for shallow-frying
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • fresh coriander sprigs, to garnish

1. Put the onions, chillies, garlic and shrimp paste in a food processor. Process but do not over-chop or the onion will become too wet and spoil the consistency of the meatballs. 
2. Dry-fry the coriander and cumin seeds in a preheated pan for about 1 minute, to release the aroma. Do not brown. Grind with a pestle and mortar.
3. Put the meat in a large bowl. Stir in the onion mixture. Add the ground coriander and cumin, soy sauce, seasoning, sugar and lemon juice. Bind with a little beaten egg and shape into small, even-size balls.
4. Chill the meatballs briefly to firm up, if necessary. Fry in shallow oil, turning often, until cooked through and browned. This will take 4 - 5 minutes, depending on their size.
5. Remove from the pan, drain well on kitchen paper and serve, garnished with coriander sprigs.
