    2       lg           Eggs
                         Plain flour -- for coating
                         Oil -- for shallow frying
 
   Cooking time: about 20-25 minutes in all
   Combine meat, boiled rice, onion and cheese, then pass
   through meat grinder using fine screen.  Add herbs,
   salt and pepper to taste and 1 lightly beaten egg.
   Mix by hand to a smooth paste. Take a generous
   tablespoon of the mixture and form into an elongated
   egg shape, wider at one end than the other, or into
   simpler torpedo shape. Moisten hand with water to
   facilitate handling.  Place kadin budu into baking
   dish side by side as they are finished. Beat remaining
   egg well and pour over kadin budu, then turn them over
   in a dish to coat them evenly with a film of egg.
   Place about 1/2 cup flour in a plate and roll budu in
   flour, one at a time, placing them into a frying pan
   of heated oil as they are coated. Use one hand for
   rolling them in the flour, keep other hand dry for
   moving them to the pan.
   Fry over high heat until golden brown, turning them
   frequently with tongs so that they keep their shape.
   Drain on paper towels and serve hot with vegetable or
   salad accompaniment.
