  • In a pan add the brown sugar, honey, ginger garlic paste, tamarind paste, chili paste or cayenne pepper powder, soy sauce, onion powder, sriracha sauce, and rice vinegar.
  • Heat up and mix all the sauce ingredients well.
  • Keep on stirring the sauce while it's reducing a bit. You can keep the sauce more liquid if you prefer. The more you reduce the sauce the more sticky it gets.
  • Add your meatballs to the pan and cover the meatballs generously with the sauce.
  • Take out all the meatballs and place on a serving tray.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds over the meatballs as a garnish and serve at room temperature.
