Sweet n Chilli Meatballs

Sweet n Chilli Meatballs…………This dish is one of our “yam cha” lunch at home. The meatballs is my leftover from my siomai since I have run-out of siomai wrapper. That day we had steam bok choi, chicken wings in soy bean paste, siomai, chicken feet and some noodles. Yes, we ate all of that. My wife is a good “eater”, she’s a “buffet woman”(LOL)………………Did you know that chillies are an antioxidant, chilli is also useful in preserving food because this “spices” were a means of keeping food bacteria-free. On a book I read(Food and Health), It says that the more spicy the chillies, the more healthier. I love chillies………
