      Good but spicy! I used celery instead of water chesnuts, dried herbs instead of fresh, all coconut milk and omitted the fish sauce as I did not have it. I still thought it was very good, even with my adjustments, and will try again. Thanks!

      Had mixed reviews on this one. I had to make a lot of re-adjustments on the sauce (add in more milk and even cornstarch with water to thicken up better)-- came out too salty. Would probably reduce the fish sauce next time. Stewing the balls in the sauce though made it really nice and moist.
