Bill's tip: 'When shaping the meatballs, I find that wetting my hands first makes this easier.'

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas mark 7. To make the meatballs, put all the ingredients except the oil in a large mixing bowl and mix together well with your hands. Shape into small balls.
  2. Put the meatballs in a large roasting tin, drizzle with the oil and then toss gently. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins, or until golden.
  3. To make the curry sauce, heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the curry paste and ginger and cook, stirring, for 1 min. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 2-3 mins. Add the coconut milk and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and leave to simmer for 5 mins. Add the meatballs, stir carefully to coat and then simmer in the sauce for 20 mins. Gently stir in the lemon juice and brown sugar.
  4. Garnish with the cashew nuts and coriander and serve over steamed rice.
