Fried mixed veg balls are 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 plain four batter and bread crumbs gives this Indian starter an enticingly crunchy top layer, which slowly gives way to a succulent and spicy filling as you bite into it.

Crunchy veggie balls can be relished hot and fresh, with tomato ketchup. For adults a spicy Schezuan sauce or any other spicy hot sauce would be a good accompaniment.

Tips for fried vegetable balls. 1. To reduce cooking time, you can boil green peas and potatoes in a microwave. 2. To make plain flour-water mixture, add water gradually. The quantity of water often depends on the quality of the flour. The batter should be lump free and not very thick nor very thin. 3. You can roll the balls and refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours. Remove them from the refrigerator 2 to 3 minutes before frying. 4. While rolling the balls, always dip them in the maida mixture with one hand and roll in bread crumbs with the other hand. This way you will get evenly coated balls and there will be less mess.

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.
