pork and sesame balls with chilli dip

  • 500g Ritchies premium pork mince
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 3 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • vegetable or peanut oil to fry
  • chilli dipping sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 5 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek (add more if you like things really hot)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice (or to taste)
  • 1 spring onion (white part), very finely chopped

to serve

  • 1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds
  • 2 spring onions, cut in strips
  • 1 long red chilli, cut in thin diagonal slices

Combine all the pork ball ingredients, except oil and sesame seeds, in a bowl and mix well until the mixture becomes slightly sticky. Clean hands work best for this. Roll into 3cm diameter balls and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate to rest for about 30 minutes. In a small bowl mix all the chilli dip ingredients then cover with cling film and chill ’till you’re ready to serve. Heat a char-grill, BBQ or large frying pan to medium heat. Brush the balls lightly with oil. Fry them, turning occasionally for around 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked right through. Turn the heat off and drizzle with a little of the dipping sauce, turning until well coated and gleaming. Transfer to a serving plate, with the remaining dip in a small bowl in the centre. Finish the dish with scattered sesame seeds, spring onion strips, chilli slices then serve with toothpicks as a easy canapé or with jasmine rice and steamed greens as a meal. Makes about 18. Serves 4-6.
