Substitute peanut oil for coconut oil.

Add fish sauce to curry sauce to taste if desired for a more intense flavour.

Add vegetables (zucchini, broccoli, greens beans etc) to Varoma dish and tray for a more complete meal.

The meatballs on their own make great finger food! Add a little more curry paste to the chicken mixture if you like more flavour!

The remaining curry paste will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

 Add a chilli or 3 to the curry paste for some heat.

    I found the balls really dry. the sauce was bland and needs some spice and salt, but even then prob will still be bland.

    These are yummy! I did add salt to the chicken mixture and it definately needed it (or add some of the curry paste as suggested). The paste also needed 3-4 lugs of the fish sauce as also suggested. I also added a long red chilli for heat

    I LOVE this recipe! It's my favourite all-in-one meal that is loved by the kids just as much as the adults. I always add heaps of fish sauce to the curry sauce for the extra flavour as suggested in the tips tmrc_emoticons.)
