“Easy to prepare and simple to cook. A great entree or a simple dish to serve as part of a buffet. Serve hot with some dipping sauce. To cut down on preparation time you can use a food processor to chop and mix everything from start to finish- the texture will be finer (add 1 extra tablespoon of cornflour). For a gluten free diet ensure the cornflour used is GF. Should the mixture be too wet....add more cornstarch (cornflour) until balls can be formed. Use wet hands if required to roll.”
