Salt (to taste)

3 tablespoons milk

A hand full (or less) of chopped green(spring) onions

for frying

Vegetable Oil

For the Batter

How to

  • Cook with a little salt till it is soft,but not (mushy-kinda soft),just until you can insert a fork in without any resistance
  • Drain the the water,put it back on the heat and mash immediately (if you wait,it becomes a little harder to mash)
  • Remove from the heat
  • Add the minced meat,black pepper
  • Taste and adjust the salt to your liking
