  • 2 egg whites

  • 100g rice flour

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 tbsp Kikkoman soy sauce

  • 2 tsp turmeric

  • 1 ½ litres of water

    In a large bowl combine the pork, onion, chilli, ginger, mint, coriander, chicken stock, egg whites, soy sauce and rice flour, then massage until combined.

  • 2.

    Pour the water into an oven-proof dish, mix in the rice and turmeric and stir well, (careful with the turmeric as it really stains almost everything.)

  • 3.

    Form the pork mixture into meatballs and place in the rice and water, cover with a tight fitting lid or tin foil then bake at 200c for 40-45 minutes.
