Chicken Teriyaki Sushi Balls


sushi


Pin It!

June 2012 by far ... is my busiest and luckiest month...thumbs up
Busy....
My sister and her hubby were here for a visit. They were excited and anxious too as this was their first time ever travelling overseas. I knew that feeling too well...yes... that took me back to the time when it was my first time stepping into the  plane... butterflies in my stomach were making somersault.
Excited ~ I was the first in my family to be given the opportunity to see and experience the "Western World..."
Anxiety ~ I was raised in a non- English speaking community...I had no confidence in conversing 100 percent English...nail biting without my Manglish of 'lah-s, ma-s and alamak-s'...

It was a relief to see them emerging from the "otherside" through the sliding door... a little bit dazed, tired and sleepy but NO drama with either Immigrations or Customs. So their holiday began... and so was I, busy, trying to win the 'Hostess with the Mostess of the Year' award winking



Lucky...
Lady Luck is with me this month...grinning from ear to ear...

Luck 1~ my Red Bean Ice-Cream photo came 3rd place in the 'Overall Winner' category in DMBLGIT May 2012

Luck 2~ In my "nearly half a century" life... I was lucky once and won a colour TV set in a Lucky Dip, and that 'luck',  was 'borrowed' from my unborn son... yes, I was heavily pregnant with my 1st born. Nothing before and nothing after that...despite countless giveaways I participated... until June 2012.
I just couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my name printed in Denise's Singapore Shiok.... I just won her funky red Mom's Not Cooking cookbook!!!

Anyone knows whether millions of AUD to be won, in Lotterywest  this month?... perhaps Lady Luck may want to grant me my millions $$$hee hee.... yeah... yeah.. greedy and  pushing my luck to the max..hehehe

  1. Adui....cantiknya! This little sushi balls and was deep fried,I bet this must be real delicious and yummy. Just never thought that it can be lightly deep fried to make it more unique and flavourful.

  7. I love this recipe! I really want to try a "cheating" version of it - without deep frying. I have a deep frying phobia :-). I want to broil the balls instead. Do you think it will work?
    And congratulations on all the victories - this is great!

  11. I made them for dinner :-). I also made a vegetarian version with cucumber instead of chicken. I first baked them for about 5 minutes at 375 and then I broiled them for another 2 minutes. They turned out surprisingly golden and crispy on the outside, looked pretty much like your photo :-). And they tasted great! We had them with a salad with sesame oil - soy sauce - lemon - rice vinegar - peanut butter dressing and it made a great meal. Thanks so much, Lisa! What's next on the menu? ;-)
