Once you have finished, heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the meatballs in batches. Keep that pan on a medium high heat and cook them for 3-4 minutes, rolling them about the pan to cook on all sides and prevent them sticking or burning. After 3 minutes remove a ball and cut it open to check there is no pink.
Remove and enjoy with a side of sweet chilli sauce.
