3 red chilies, seeded and chopped finely

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon grass (white part only) chopped finely

4 cloves garlic, crushed

3 onions, chopped finely

1 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons rice flour

Method :

Chop the fish fillets finely and add in the fish sauce in a bowl. Mix all ingredients except rice flour and egg to combine well. Add the rice flour and egg. Mix thoroughly to combine. With the slightly damp hands, make small balls from the mixture, each with a diameter of approximately 3 cm. Heat the oil in a deep-sided frying pan or deep fryer. Add the fish balls in 2 batches and fry over medium heat until golden. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle the extra cilantro over the fish balls and serve immediately with the lemon wedges.
