Procedures for Making Fish Ball Recipe

  1. Begin by cutting the cold or slightly frozen fish fillets into small, manageable chunks. Keeping the fish cold ensures a better texture when blending.

  2. Place the fish chunks into a blender. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, salt, sugar, and white ground pepper to the fish in the blender.

  3. Blend the mixture until it becomes a smooth and well-mixed paste, which will be your fish paste.

  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, potato starch (or tapioca/cornstarch), and baking powder.

  5. In a separate small bowl, whisk the egg white until it becomes frothy.

  6. Gradually pour the ice-cold water into the dry mixture while stirring continuously, until you have a smooth batter.

  7. Mix in the frothy egg white and a tablespoon of oil into the batter until fully incorporated.

  8. Wet your hands to prevent sticking, then take a small portion of the fish paste. Roll the paste between your palms to form small, round fish balls. Adjust the size to your preference.

  9. In a frying pan or pot, heat enough oil for deep frying to a temperature of 350-375°F (175-190°C). Use a thermometer for accuracy.

  10. Gently place the fish balls into the hot oil, taking care not to overcrowd the pan. Fry until they turn a beautiful golden brown and are crispy, which should take around 3-4 minutes per batch.

  11. Use a slotted spoon to carefully remove the fish balls and transfer them to a tray lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

    Your homemade fish balls are now ready to be savored!
