Thai meatballs

I think meatballs are one of the most diverse dishes of all time - cooked in tomato sauce in Italy and Greece, wrapped in flatbread in Turkey, served in hot soup in Vietnam or covered in gravy in Sweden. When done well, they are moist, delicious and a great cheap eat. When done badly they are dry and tasteless.  Lending itself to so many different creations, I like to experiment with the humble meatball. For this dish you can use traditional coconut milk however for a tangy and creamy twist, you can use yoghurt. Go with your gut.  Ingredients: 500g pork or beef 1/2inch of ginger, grated 2 cloves of garlic, crushed 1 tablespoons lime juice 1 tablespoon of crushed lemongrass 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons of coriander 1 red chili (small or ½ big chili – remove seeds if you don’t like spice) ½ teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon flour 1 tablespoons of thai paste (you can use green curry paste if you like or follow the below recipe) 3/4 cup of chicken stock ½ cup yoghu
