Browseing through some recipes I camr accross this very tasty meat ball with a difference done by Henrie Geyser
This tasty dish is a combination of Greek, Italian and Asian flavours
suggest you serve it with other oven-roasted extras such as roasted beetroot, pumpkin and potato or other choices.
The sauce the rissoles are baked in has quite a strong flavour and a cheeky nip to it, so make sure that your guests are okay with spicy food.
