Sticky Honey Ginger Soy glazed meatballs

Honey ginger soy glazed meatballs are sweet, sticky, spicy and perfect finger food / appetizer. These are so easy to make and bursting with flavors. Meatballs are flavored with ginger , garlic and soy sauce and are deep fried. They are  super crispy on the outside yet moist and juicy from the inside. Honey soy glaze is absolutely delicious and pairs well with the spicy meatballs. Along with crunchy veggies these meatballs make a wholesome meal.
Best served as an appetizer or over a bowl of noodles/fried rice. So good!
