Place the mince, breadcrumbs, lime zest, curry paste, ginger and corinader together in a bowl with plenty of salt and ground black pepper. Mix together then divide into 24 and shape into 24 neat balls. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok, add the meatballs and saute for about 8 mins until golden brown all over and cooked through.
Add the coconut, fish sauce, sugar, lime juice and chilli to the pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 mins. Add the spring onions and beans and simmer for a further 4 mins until the beans are tender. Serve the meatballs hot with rice, decorate with a wedge of lime and more chopped coriander if liked.
