Combine all into a food processor and process into a fine paste

Add paste into the meat and mix well

Place flour on a plate, dip your hand on it

Take a sum of meat and shape ball, roll onto the flour. Repeat this step until all meat used up

Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a nonstick pan, heat a little of oil (sunflower is the best for this), and fry balls on each side until light browned (3-4 minutes)

Place a baking rack on a baking sheet that already covered with foil, then place balls on the baking rack.

Place baking sheet on the 2nd rack from the lowest and bake for 20 or until cooked.
