The Rocky Forest

Chicken meatballs and a lychee cucumber salad makes for a healthy Friday in.
I went with a slight Thai theme.


Mix minced chicken with the following: salt, ginger paste, garlic paste, blended or finely chopped onions, cumin and coriander powders, chopped coriander leaves, a dash of lime, basil, and Thai green curry paste if you can get your hands on that.

Heat up a pan of vegetable oil and take little bits of the mince mix, make balls and shallow fry for a few minutes. Take one out and cut open to make sure it's cooked. Top with dried basil seasoning.


Peel the lychees and make a side incision to get the seeds out. Throw in spinach and cucumbers and season with a lime-basil vinaigrette (dressing of a tiny bit of olive oil with a dash of lime and some basil, maybe a little sugar and a drop or two of soy sauce).

Remember to undo all this by cheating this weekend.
