 Ingredients List

  • 4 oz Beans, moong, dried
  • 1 tb Flour, all-purpose
  • 2 ts Red curry paste
  • 1 tb Soy sauce, light
  • 1 ts Sugar, granulated
  • 2 Kaffir lime leaves
  • Oil; for deep-frying


4 tb Sugar, granulated
6 tb Vinegar, rice
1/2 ts Salt

Soak the moong beans in water for 30 minutes; drain. Roll the kaffir
leaves into thin cigarettes; slice into slivers. In a mortar pound the
drained moong beans to form a paste. Add the other ingredients in turn,
stirring well. Pluck a small piece of the paste and form into a ball the
size of a walnut. Do not mould too tightly. Deep-fry the balls until
golden brown, drain and serve with the thick sweet sauce below.
THE SAUCE: Gently heat the three ingredients until the sugar dissolves.
Allow to cool before serving.
