1/1 Photo of Spicy Speculaar Dutch Meatballs
This one uses the Speculaas spice mix that is usually uses for cookies. The recipe is adapted from the AH supermarket chain magazine. It's an appetizer, and I think would be nice served with a selection of things on toothpicks. I'm not sure if you have a name for ketjap manis in English but it's an Indonesian sweet soya sauce and sambal badjak is a hot indonesian sauce made from chilies and onions. The spices mentioned are supposed to be Speculaaskruiden which is a spice mix powder for cookies and I will update the recipe as soon as I can get it added to the Kitchen dictionary.
