Rempeh Balletjes

Indonesian-style Meatballs

Something nice to dunk in peanut sauce.


  • 400 g minced beef, chicken or pork
  • 75g breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 medium leek finely shredded
  • 1 small to medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp sambal or chilli sauce
  • 2 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1/4 tsp  salt
  • Peanut oil


  1. Chop the onion and shred the leek very finely
  2. Mix well with the spices, salt coconut and breadcrumbs
  3. Stir in the beaten egg and then the mince and mix well.  (The dough hook on the Kenwood does a good job).
  4. Chill the mixture for an hour or so, covered, in the refrigerator
  5. Roll a heaped teaspoon at a time into balls
  6. Fry in oil over medium heat until brown and cooked through


Serving suggestion:  Sprinkle with coconut and serve on toothpicks to be dipped in a nice sauce, such as peanut sauce, mango chutney, plum sauce, or a dip made from Greek yoghurt, lime juice, chilli, garlic, chopped coriander and mint leaves.



About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
