Ingredients

How to make it

  • Put the garlic, ginger, turmeric, sugar, salt, chilli sauce, soy sauce, chopped cilantro and lime juice in a food processor and process until the mixture forms a paste.
  • Add three quarters of the cooked rice to the paste in the food processor and process until smooth. Scrape into a mixing bowl and stir in remaining rice.
  • Wet your hands in some cold water and shape the mixture into small balls (about 1 tbsp. of mixture per ball).
  • Place chopped peanuts in a shallow dish. Dip the rice balls in the beaten egg first, then roll them in chopped nuts, coating evenly. Note: the peanuts have to be chopped fine. That way they coat the balls better and more evenly.
  • Heat the oil in a deep fryer or wok to about 375F. Add the balls, about 5 at a time, and cook for a few minutes, until crisp and lightly browned. Drain on paper towells. Serve warm with chilli dipping sauce.
