5.  Add italian parsley, green onion and cooked rice to the pork mixture. Stir to combine.

6.  Pass the pork and rice mixture through a meat grinder. Pour in some retained broth in which the pork was cooked to adjust the consistency. Place in the refrigerator for two hours.

7.  Place flour, egg wash and panko bread crumbs on a work surface. Prepare an even sized ball with the boudin mixture and roll it in flour. Dip each ball in the egg wash and then coat with panko crumbs. Set aside. Repeat with the remaining boudin mixture.

8.  In an electric fryer, heat the oil for deep frying the oudin balls at 350 degrees F. Gently drop the boudin balls in hot oil and allow to cook till golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
