Soda Crackers Fried Meatballs



This cute little meatball is a hit with my kids! Initially I thought using 1kg worth of minced pork is quite a lot, but they almost wanting to polish off in one meal. Hahaha goodness I've to stop them so I could save some of the meatballs for next meal. :P Its a straight forward recipe which you just need to mix everything up. The only chore is to chop up all the ingredients finely so that the meat mixture can bind up nicely. Stir vigorously till mixture is sticky, but I find is best to use your hand to knead and slam the mixture for a better texture. Give this recipe a try, I'm sure your kids will love this too!
