    Directions

    1. To make the fish balls, process fish, egg, basil, cilantro, sugar, sauce, chili, garlic and turmeric in a food processor, until a paste forms. Chill for 15 mins.
    2. To make dipping sauce, mix sugar and 1/3 cup boiling water until sugar dissolves. Blend in white vinegar, fish sauce, garlic and red chili.
    3. Using oiled fingers, roll fish mixture into 1 inch balls. Heat oil until a small amount of mixture sizzles as soon as it is added. Fry fish balls in batches for 2-3 mins, turning, until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.
    4. To make the salad, combine cucumber, cilantro and scallion. Whisk together lime juice, sugar and fish sauce. Drizzle over salad.
    5. Serve salad and fish balls together. Sprinkle with nuts and accompany with dipping sauce.
