STEP-BY-STEP COOKING RECIPE
We prepare meatballs: we add liquid honey, lemon grass paste and soy sauce to the meat. We thoroughly knead, form 12 meatballs. You can add the yolk and some breadcrumbs (or oatmeal). Heat oil, fry meatballs and set aside.
Grind onion, garlic and chili without seeds for 2 minutes, add curry paste, coconut milk, pumpkin puree, mix. Spread the meatballs in the sauce and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes. If necessary, we add a little water to the pan (in the case of a very thick mashed pumpkin).
After 15 minutes, open the pan, add if necessary soy sauce to taste, lime juice, sugar. If the sauce is too thin, evaporate it, heating for several minutes without a lid. Serve with jasmine rice.
