Preparation -- 15 minutes

Start with the mini meatballs. PEEL and finely chop the shallot and garlic clove. COMBINE half of the chopped shallot and garlic with the minced beef, 1 egg, sambal, bread crumbs and season with soy sauce, pepper and salt.

Use your hands to create tiny meatballs and set them aside on the large plate. REMOVE the seeds from the bell pepper and chop into cubes. Also CHOP the zucchini into cubes and the mushrooms into slices.

DRAIN the cooked chickpeas and also set them aside.
