Meatballs, the locals call it dumplings. In the local area, every family will have croquettes during the Chinese New Year. I heard that people in Yancheng prefer glutinous rice balls. The balls here often add horseshoe, yam, radish, and lotus root. Generally, very little is added. If lotus root is added, more will be added, which is called lotus root balls.
Ingredients: 800 grams of pork foreleg meat paste, 400 grams of lotus root Ingredients: 2 eggs, 10 grams of ginger, 10 grams of white onion, 15 grams of light soy sauce, 5 grams of salt, 25 grams of starch, 200 grams of water, and a little bit of thirteen spices.
