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.
1/3 sweet potato starch
2 ounces jicama (sarkut), cuts tiny small cubes
3 ounces fish paste
11/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon pepper powder
1 sprigs cilantro, minced
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 tablespoon water
Boil a small pot of water and blanch jicama cubes for 10 seconds. Remove, leave it to cold and
squeeze out water.
Into a big mixing bowl, add in all the above ingredients and combine everything. Add in jicama cubes.
Heat up the wok, add oil to fry the balls, use a metal spoon to scoop us a small portion of the mixture
and gently drop into the hot oil to fry.
Fry the balls until golden brown and remove from wok.
