Tonight was another one of those time pressure nights - mum's taxi in action and people needing to go out so the meal had to be ready on time as well as suitable for reheating. Initially I had pulled turkey mince out of the freezer and I intended to make turkey balls similar to a Thai fish cake but the weather today has been so miserable (the wettest July day in Townsville since 1950) that salad and meatballs really was not going to cut it.
I started by chopping the seasoning for the meatballs in the Thermomix for 4 seconds on speed 9
The coriander I use is Thai or sawtooth coriander. It looks quite different to normal coriander but once it is established in your garden you will never run out. You use the long flat leaves and it reseeds from the prickly flowers.
Then I added the other ingredients:
500g turkey mince
salt and pepper
Mix 2 minutes at speed 2
