Allergy Friendly Asian Chicken Balls on a bed of rice

This is an Asian inspired dish. It uses chicken mince in the meatballs instead of beef. I think you can substitute the meat of your choice. It is a very easy dish to make.

In this Allergy Friendly Asian Chicken Balls. first shape the mince into balls and then fry them. The corn flour gives it a crispy texture when fried. It also serves as the binder. If you cannot use the corn flour, see the chef notes below. Once the balls are fried the sauce comes together very quickly and easily. Serve the dish with plain boiled white rice or with my restaurant style fried rice.
