Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil on medium high heat. Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Thinly slice widthways. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press), peel and grate the ginger. Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all), then roughly chop the peanuts. Zest and halve the lime.


Put the pork mince in a bowl, add the panko breadcrumbs and lime zest. Add a third of the soy sauce, half the ginger and a grind of pepper. Mix together with your hands until completely combined, then shape into small meatballs (5 per person). Pop them on a plate. IMPORTANT: Remember to wash your hands after handling raw meat!


Add the noodles to the boiling water and simmer until tender, 4 mins. Once cooked, drain in a sieve, put them back in their pan and cover with cold water (to stop them cooking anymore).


Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan or wok on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs and fry, turning occasionally until browned on the outside and cooked through, about 10 mins. IMPORTANT: The meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle. Once cooked, transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil.


Add a little more oil to the pan along with the carrot and mangetout and stir-fry until softened, 3-4 mins. Drain your noodles again. Turn the heat to medium, add the garlic and remaining ginger to the veg, cook for 1 minute more. Add the ketjap manis to the pan along with the remaining soy sauce. Squeeze in half the lime juice and a splash of water. Add the meatballs and drained noodles, toss everything together. Cook until piping hot, 2-3 mins.


Serve in bowls with the coriander and peanuts sprinkled on top. Cut the remaining lime into wedges and serve on the side for anyone that likes things zesty! Enjoy!
