  1. Put 120ml coconut milk, 2 tablespoons dessicated coconut, 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, and 1/2 teaspoon ground chile into a small saucepan. Use crushed chile also if you like chili! Simmer it 5 minutes, covered or partially covered.
  2. When it is quite cool, add 1 teaspoon cornflour, and blend it all with a spoon.
  3. Put the ground pork, the ground beef, the onion, garlic, egg white, soy sauce and brown sugar into a food processor.
  4. Chop this, pulsing it several times.
  5. When it is nicely chopped, add half (60ml) of the coconut infusion that you have prepared.
  6. Blend this, whizzing it until the mixture is uniform throughout.
  7. Put this meat mixture into a bowl, and refrigerate it for 1/2 hour or 1 hour, so that it is cool when you handle it.
  8. When the meat paste is quite cool, shape into small meatballs.
  9. Put the remaining 60ml of the coconut infusion into a large, wide pan. Add another 200ml coconut milk, 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, 2 tablespoons dessicated coconut, 2 tablespoons peanut oil, and 1 tablespoon prepared chile sauce into the pan. Blend this with a spoon.
  10. Put the tomatoes from a can of drained, whole tomatoes into this sauce. Now, put the meatballs into the pan.
  11. Simmer this, covered, over low heat, for about one hour.
  12. The sauce will cook down, and towards the end, the meatballs will brown in the oil that is in the mix.
  13. Allow to cool.
  14. Put these appetizer meatballs onto a serving dish with toothpicks.
