Fried Chewy Golden Meatballs

I miss the Kampar crispy fried balls. Not only the fried balls, actually you can find a lot of yummy licious food in Kampar. Most of their fried " liew" were freshly fried upon ordering. During my visit last year I purposely go to Kampar just to eat their "liew fun"," loh shi fun" fried "kuey teow" and "chee cheung fun" at  the morning market, Medan Selera Kampar. After breakfast we carry on with our makan trip is to stop by, I forgot where is that place, is either Gopeng or Manbang Di Awan. But I do remember we have had the most fresh delicious kampung durian, rambutan, langsat and mangosteen. Mmmm! I am drooling now when mention about the names of these tropical fruits.

Today I fried this meatballs is just to imitate the taste of the kampar fried balls. Surprisingly it turns good
is just that it is not as chewy as the original one. I think very soon I will be making another batch of fried balls and this time will make it more chewy.
