Look no further than the nearest street-food stall for this treat. Yellow fish balls are made from a mixture of fish and flour pounded into a paste, rolled into a ball, then boiled in a spicy curry sauce until it reaches golden perfection; this snack is an excellent energy booster for travelers on the go.
