What's for Dinner: Pearl Meatballs

I cooked these pearl meat balls long time ago and the photo was in my iomega hard drive all along but I haven't forget about its recipe and how heavenly it tastes like. Very easy to prepare and very easy to cook, it can quickly disappear from the plate too. sarap kasi!

I was thinking to have it for dinner tonight although the meat is still to be thawed and the glutinous rice are still to be soaked so as much as I want to eat this tonight, I'll have to leave it until tomorrow.

1 egg white
10 water chestnuts drained well and very finely chopped
2 tablespoons very finely chopped scallions

Dipping Sauce:
