Cimol (Seasoned Starch Balls)

Originating from Indonesia and a sure hit with the young and old, Cimol (pronounced Chee-Mol) fulfils everything a perfect street snack should be–it is bite-sized, deep-fried, and with the right amount of chewiness. Made mostly of tapioca and wheat flour, we recommend not having it too close to your meals because you will not be able to stop popping them in!
