Delicious, soft, juicy balls with the most delicate filling.
Even those who don’t like beans should like these balls.
Canned beans can be used instead of boiled beans..
Rice or potatoes are ideal for garnish..
When serving, you can pour the side dish and balls with the sauce in which they were stewed.
From the specified amount of ingredients, 15-18 balls are obtained.
