Fried Vegetable Balls is an ever-popular starter . Made of a large assortment of veggies, ranging from potatoes to beans and capsicum, this yummy starter is excitingly flavoured with spices and soy sauce.

Deep-frying the veggie mix with a coating of batter and bread crumbs gives the Fried Vegetable Balls an enticingly crunchy top layer, which slowly gives way to a succulent and spicy filling as you bite into it. Relish this starter hot and fresh, with tomato ketchup.

Fried Vegetable Balls are also fun to eat along with Creamy Tomato Spaghetti or just spread some Mexican Tomato Sauce on a tortilla place a few Fried Vegetable Balls, top it with Papaya, Peanuts and Capsicum Salad and wrap it up for a lip smacking wholesome meal.

It is such a quick recipe. i did not have much vegetables at home, and i came across this recipe. It was so delicious and the best part was it was made using minimum number of ingredients and that too with those which are commonly available at home. They taste amazing when served with chilli sauce.
