Fried Chicken Cake with Tofu,Vegetables and Basil

I bought a box of 5 pounds minced chicken from BJ's wholesale.I prefer to use minced chicken in my Chinese or Asian cooking rather than minced beef due to religion reason.I freeze half of the minced chicken and use the other half to make this chicken cake.Since I still have Thai's basil in my garden,I created this chicken cake using this special herb and other vegetables.This chicken cake is suitable as an appetizer or snack and you can serve it with your favorite sauce:chili sauce or sweet chili sauce or garlic chili sauce.

2 lb minced chicken meat
50 gm chopped carrot
2 red sweet pepper,de-seeded and cut small
1 small onion,peeled and cut small
1 stalk green scallion,washed and cut small
1/2 block soft tofu,cut small
2 sprig Thai's basil,use leafs only chopped fine
1/4 cup all purpose flour,plus extra for dusting
2 large eggs

2 tbsp fish oil
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1:Combine ingredients A and B together in a large bowl.Use a large spatula to mix the ingredients well.Check the seasoning.
2:Heat skillet with oil a medium heat.Pat your hands wet with cold water.Use the spatula to scoop a handful chicken mixture on your palm,shape like burger shape.Place the patty on the skillet. Fry both side of the patty until golden brown,about 5 minutes.
3:Remove chicken cake from skillet to a paper towel to absorb oil.Cut the cake and serve warm with your favorite sauce.
