The cool, crisp quality of the lettuce leaves is what makes this dish so pleasing to eat. The point is the contrast of refreshing lettuce leaves to hot, spicy meatballs. Try tucking in a few fresh mint leaves when you wrap the patties in the lettuce.
4 spring onions, roughly chopped
4 small, hot red chillies and their seeds, chopped
A thumb sized lump of ginger, peeled and coarsely grated
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 thick stalks of lemon grass
The stalks and leaves of a small bunch of coriander
100g slice of smoked pancetta or fatty bacon, roughly diced
500g minced pork
A little vegetable or groundnut oil for frying
16 large, crisp lettuce leaves
A few mint leaves (optional)
