In Singapore, I’ve seen fish balls in many dishes. Noodle soup with fish balls is one of the more popular Singapore dish among those fish ball dishes. Sometimes I buy a packet of fish balls and cook it as a stir fry. Recently I tried fish balls with a spicy sauce and it goes well with our Sri Lankan taste. This recipe is bit similar to deviled sausages recipe which I shared before. Anyway, without much effort it is easy to cook this devilled fish balls and really good with a dish of fried rice.

I only used green chilies but you can still mix some red bell peppers for both flavor and appearance.
Here is my recipe. Try it and forget about these dark pictures. The devilled fish balls came out nicely. But I captured it fast and just before the dinner!
