Recipe For Thai Inspired Lamb Meatballs

I have been asked for a meatball recipe by Shazzie and I could have sent her to look here at the pasta and meatball recipe, or here for my kefta tagine recipe, but instead I decided to do a whole new recipe for her. Here is my recipe for Thai Inspired Lamb Meatballs.
