  3. Quickly shape meat mixture into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diam., and drop into stock. Simmer meatballs, uncovered for 5 minutes, then spoon off any fat and foam from surface.
  4. Add carrots, rice and coriander. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until carrots and rice are tender to bite.
