  • Pre heat the oven to 180C.
  • Divide the turkey mince into 10 equal portions and roll
    into balls. You can use pre made meat balls for this.
  • Spray an oven proof dish with a little oil and place the
    meatballs in the dish and put in the oven for 20 minutes
    (or until browned and cooked through). You need to turn
    them half way through.
  • Put all the sauce ingredients in a small pan and mix well.
    Place on a medium heat and bring up to a simmer
    before turning the heat down low and allow to thicken.
    Keep an eye on this, stirring regularly! (You can add a
    splash of water if it becomes too thick, just don’t let it
  • Heat a large frying pan/wok and stir fry the veg until
    starting to soften. Add the garlic puree and mix through
    before removing the veg and setting aside.
  • Once the meat balls are ready, remove from the oven
    and place into the sauce mixing through gently. Turn the
    heat right down and leave for a few minutes while you
    finish the rice.
  • Open the unheated microwave rice and pour into a
    bowl. Break up any clumps.
  • In a hot large frying pan, add 1 tsp of oil and add the rice.
    Stir quickly to heat through for 1 or 2 minutes before
    adding the cooked veg. Stir through again.
  • Add the soy sauce and mix well before serving up in
    large bowls with the meatballs served over the top with
    the chilli sauce.
