  1. Follow cooking instructions on rice packet. Rinse and drain rice really well.
  2. Place all the vegetables, mince, stock powder, oyster sauce, soup sachet and egg white into a large mixing bowl and using your hands combine well.
  3. Add cooked rice and mix in well using your hands to work the ingredients together thoroughly. This will ensure that the rissoles don’t break up when cooking.
