Makes around 20-22 pcs of meatballs.
Recipe type: Chinese
Cuisine: Light Bites
Serves: 2
  • 140g minced meat (pork or chicken)
  • 1 egg tofu
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 4 tsp corn flour
  • ¼ tsp sesame oil
  • dash of pepper
  • Some cooking oil for deep frying
  1. Mix the minced meat together with the egg tofu, egg and all the rest of the ingredients using hand. Throw the mixture into the mixing bowl several times before setting aside for at least 3 hours in the fridge.
  2. Heat up some cooking oil for deep frying. Roll the minced mixture into balls and drop them gently into the hot oil.
  3. Deep fry till golden brown. Drain on paper towels to soak up excess oil before serving.
1) Using hand to throw the minced mixture into the mixing bowl increases the "stickiness" of the mixture and the meatballs will be more bouncy in texture also.
2) Test the hotness of the oil by putting a chopstick into the oil. If bubbles sizzle around the chopstick, the oil is ready for deep frying.
3) For an extra kick, you can add some seafood such as minced prawns or fish/sotong paste.
