This is a recipe we discovered in our local fish market. Vendors claimed it to be fish balls but obviously when you take a bite on it you'll never taste anything but flour and spices. So my husband and I called it "fake balls" or flour balls. But we both do loved it actually and I will show you how it's cooked. This is one famous street food that the locals sell for a living and many tourist would even come and go to buy them.
