A mild meatball just perfect for dunking into a vibrant dip!
My Tropicana Balls & Dip will liven up any party, especially when you’re making a Festive Feast on a budget! Easy to make ahead of time to serve cold or fry off quickly for a pop of hot to be washed down by some bubbles.
Into a mixing bowl goes 500g of veal & pork mixed mince, 1 teaspoon of minced garlic, 1 finely chopped red chilli, 1 teaspoon of raw sugar, a splash of fish sauce & then season generously with white pepper. Give that lot a jolly good mix about with your hands before rolling into bite sized balls.
Heat up a wee bit of peanut oil in a frypan & shallow fry the balls until cooked all the way through. Drain them on some paper towel & set aside.
To make the dip, drag out good old Mr. Buzzy (aka stick blender) & into a jug goes 100ml of natural yoghurt along with 1 sliced up banana, 1 sliced up avocado & the juice of half a lime. Blitz that lot until it’s nice & smooth.
This is a brilliantly quick & easy appetiser that keeps your Festive Feast on budget!
