Something else. Very good entree. I made a few modifications, though. I couldn't find thai red chilli sauce, so I subsituted a honey-teriyaki. I also added crushed red capsicum to spice it up. Also, instead of balls, I formed an oblonged type shaped. Once cooked (in an 400 degree oven rather than frying), I inserted wooden skewers for easy handling. Try drizzling extra sauce over the skewers once plated and set a bowl of sauce on the side for dipping. A big hit at the New Years Eve party I attended this year. Thanks Vivian! - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. I used 550g of ground turkey, and subbed dried onions and dried coriander. Instead of frying these, I baked them in the oven for about 25 minutes at 200 degrees. We ate it with brown rice that had the thai chilli sauce mixed into it as well, along with some dried parsley and a few dashes of light soy sauce. Overall, this was delicious and would also make a good meatloaf with sweet and sour sauce. - 29 Sep 2008


Something else. I made a sauce to this cos for kids the Sweet Chilli may be a tad to spicy. I stick-mixed some greek Yogurt, fresh Parsley, Honey and a squirt of Lime juice. - 29 May 2011
