  2. Divide the mixture into four.
  3. Cut some baking paper into 4 pieces (A4 size).
  4. Place the mixture onto the baking sheet and shape it like sausage.
  5. Twist both the ends. Steam the sausage for 5 minutes over boiling water.
  6. Once steamed, remove the paper and heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the sausage until golden.
