Accessories you need



The origional recipe was in the Donna Hay magazine for May or June, it deep fries the meat balls, I went for the healthier option of steaming and they were lovely. Serve with noodles or rice, steamed snow peas and carrotts would also go well. I used dried chillis so its not very red!
