Crispy Radish Balls

1 daikon radish
2/3 cup garbanzo bean flour
green onion
five spice powder

Step 1
Grate the radish as fine as possible.
Thinly chop some cilantro and green onions while waiting for the radish to drain excess water.
Grab a handful of grated radish and squeeze out any excess water into a bowl. 
*Save the radish liquid for later use.* 

Transfer the ingredients to a larger bowl to make the radish balls:
grated radish w/o water
chopped cilantro and green onions
2/3 cup garbanzo bean flour
grated ginger
1 tsp five spice powder
a pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients together. If the radish mixture appears to be dry, start with adding 1 tbs radish liquid back into the mixture. (I added 3 tbs)

Step 2

Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls between your palms. Set aside.

Step 3

Heat some oil in a pan. Make sure the amount of oil in the pan should be enough to have the balls mostly emerged.  (I used a small pan. So I can use less oil.)

Gently put the radish balls in the oil. Fry them over medium high heat until evenly browned. (Turn the balls often to brown evenly)
