  • Add peanut butter and cook until it melts into a thick paste 
  • Add tomato soup, shredded coconut and chilli flakes, stir to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes or until bubbles form and pop in the centre of the pan
  • Serve with freshly baked meatlballs


  • This recipe makes 30 meatballs
  • They can be frozen after baking, then defrosted and reheated at a later date 
  • You can use leave the chilli flakes out if you are really not a fan of chilli, but I would recommend using the equivalent of the spice cardamom instead of not having the extra flavour 
  • I used crunchy peanut butter as it is THE BEST! If you don't have that, I would recommend using smooth but adding a tablespoon of granulated nuts as we want the texture of the nut with the smooth thick paste of the sauce 
  • One of the reasons why I love these meatballs is because they are so versatile! You can literally do so many things with them. Either serve them on their own as an appetiser, use them in soups, salads, pasta, you name it. Once you have tried them, you will come to realise how many things you can do with them.
