This simple Chinese dish always reminds me of little sea urchins.

They provide a fun obstacle course for the tongue. The sticky rice grains coating the meat balls become pearly in the cooking process and stand to an enticing attention. Like the pearl, however, sticky rice needs time to develop so give it a good overnight soak before you make this dish if you can.
