I have never heard of Frikadels when I was in Malaysia. However, it is a common snack / food in South Africa. Very easy to make, but yummy! I made some yesterday evening at 10pm, for us to bring it to work for lunch the next day. Didn't happen,  because we ate most of it on the same night already!
Couldn't get a nice photo of it because it was already night, and the lights are yellow lights. (So have to take with the flash on).

- 500gm lean mince
- 2 pieces of bread
- salt and pepper

1. Put mince into mixing bowl.
2. Chop the onion into small pieces, into the mixing bowl.
2. Chop the fresh parsley, into the mixing bowl.
3. Chop the chillies, into the mixing bowl.
4. Soak both bread with water, and squeeze excess water out from bread, add into mixing bowl.
5. Add egg.
