Recipe: Sam's chicken balls of goodness

This recipe was a wedding offering from our friend Sam (partner-in-crime of Pony Parade). He's a real-live chef, so we try to invite him over for dinner as often as possible!

I made these for some other friends last night and they disappeared in seconds (they were also a hit with the teenagers).

500g chicken thigh (I used chicken mince because I don't have a food processor)
1 x bunch coriander (use leaves)
2 x birds eye chilli
4 x lime leaves (I used lime juice as a subsitute)
3 x garlic cloves
1 thumb ginger
10 shakes of fish sauce

Blitz the lot until fine and with wet hands roll into teaspoon sized balls. Steam or bake 15 minutes. (I didn't blitz mine, just moshed it together well and rolled into balls)

Dipping sauce:
50ml fish sauce
50ml lime juice
1/3 cup grated palm sugar
1 chilli shredded
coriander roots
1 tsp shredded ginger
1 tsp shredded garlic

Allow to dissolve for one hour.
