You are sure to relish the succulent inner and crisp outer of this unique starter. Made of cooked and chopped spaghetti, complemented by green peas, cheese and seasonings, these balls are interestingly held together by white sauce, which mashes well with the other ingredients once it is cooled. The Spaghetti Balls are rolled in bread crumbs to get a nice crust upon deep-frying. It is essential to serve this snack immediately on preparation because spaghetti, cheese and white sauce tend to get chewy on cooling.
