Pearl Balls ( 珍珠球 )

It's been years since I last made these... and I mean... 15 years at least..
The last time I made these were when I was 15... that long, u can guess how old I am now.. kekekeke..

I got this recipe from my mother's only cookbook.. haha.
The recipe is almost the same... but this time I added in prawn meat and discarded the ginger..

Pearl balls look like dimsum.. very nice for breakfast or as snacks.
This amount of ingredients yield about 50 balls

500 gm minced pork (lean+fatty pork)
60 gm minced prawn meat
3 Tbsp finely chopped water chestnut
2 Tbsp finely chopped green onion
1 Tbsp corn starch
1 tsp sesame oil
1 egg white
3/4 tsp salt
good dash of white pepper

1 cup glutinous rice (soaked for at least 1 hour, better 3 hours, it'll expand to abt 1.5 cups)

1. Mix all the ingredients together except rice


  1. Yummy... Looks easy and yummy... Wanna try this during this coming weekend (If only I'm not lazy..

    What you think if I replaced the finely chopped carrot for the decoration with fish roe? Will it taste weird? :P


  2. It is easy....

    I saw another site using fish roe. I think a little bit should be ok.
    Actually, I tot of using salted egg yolk for deco, and using the salted egg white in the pork.. but I din try it out. It's up to u.. nothing is fixed.
