Pork and peanut balls
( MAKES 20 )

In these pork and peanut balls, the nuts add flavour and an unexpected crunch. I cook them in the oven to avoid mess — you can cook them all on one tray. Serve them hot as-is, or with your favourite sauce; sweet chilli is always popular.
- Place coriander, peanuts, spring onion, and ginger in a food processor and blitz until roughly chopped. Add sweet chilli, lime and sesame seeds and blitz again.
- Place pork in a medium sized bowl, season with salt and pepper and add peanut mixture, combining well. With damp hands roll mixture into 20 even-sized balls. Refrigerate until needed.
- Preheat an oven to 180C.
- Place the balls on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 5 minutes until cooked through.
