3/4 lb ground meat
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 tablespoon baking powder
4 tablespoons rice
1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon ground
black pepper salt
1 cup of flour
oil for frying
Mix the meat, garlic, rice, black pepper and salt
in a bowl. Shape into balls half the size of an egg; put in a pan with a little water and cook over medium heat until ready.
Mix the flour with the baking powder, yeast, eggs and a little water to form a dough-like batter. Set aside to rise for at
least two hours (Alternative: use pancake mix to make the batter). Coat the balls in batter; fry in very hot oil and serve
hot. Serves: 3 - 4 persons.
