Sweet n Sour Meatballs

Mum bought some meatballs from Jusco just the other day. I'm bored of the usual deep-frying and decided to try something different with the meatballs. The sweet, sour and spicy sauce of this dish nicely compliments the meatballs. I'll definitely make this again.

Meatballs - 10
Onion (sliced thinly) - 1
Garlic (chopped) - 3 cloves
Ginger (chopped) - 1 tsp
Bird's eye chili (chopped) - 2
Chili sauce - 8 tbsp
Tomato sauce - 3 tbsp
Water - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste

Drizzled some oil in the pan and stir-fried the meatballs till brown. Remove and keep aside.
Sautee some onions, garlic, ginger and chilies in the same pan.
Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a separate bowl and pour into the pan. Once the sauce simmers, add in the meatballs and stir.
Check and adjust taste by adding chili/tomato sauce to thicken or water to lighten.
Dish out and garnish with some cilantro leaves.
