Meat ball and capsicum are perfect match. Pair it up with onion and tomato sauce, and you'll get a delectable dish to serve with rice. To simplify the cooking, the meat ball can be shallow fried in non-stick pan or wok instead of deep frying. The meat ball is equally tasty with 2 different methods, but shallow fried version sounds more healthy.
