In a food processor, whizz up the onion, ginger, garlic, peppercorns and the coriander stalks until finely chopped. Then add the chicken mince and eggs and mix until forms a nice paste. Shape the meatball mix into small balls, about 50p size. Place them in a large frying pan and gently fry in the coconut oil until they start to colour and are sealed all over (it may be necessary to do this in batches). Put the stock in a large saucepan, bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Add the sesame oil, fish sauce, ginger and crushed peppercorns and then cover with a lid and simmer for 20 minutes. While the broth is simmering cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Add the spring onions, cooked noodles and chicken meatballs. Finish with the chopped coriander and some chopped chilli before serving.
