How to make Risoles

Risoles was my favorite Indonesian snack growing up. I'm so glad that my boys like it too. I just wish it is easier to make so I can make this often. Anyway, I was making some last week and planning to save some in the freezer but all are gone within 3 days. My mom' sister made the best risoles I ever taste but as typical older Asian woman she doesn't measure her ingredients just approximate she said. Well, approximate doesn't work well for me. I got to make this a few times to get the result turned out as how she made it. Thank you auntie for the inspiration.
