A dough of potatoes and mixed vegetables perked up with garam masala is deep-fried into crunchy vegetable balls, which are floated in a tangy tomato-based sauce, and served with a yummy garnish of cheese.

After adding the vegetable balls to the tomato sauce, remember to cook on a medium flame for a few minutes to allow the balls to soak in the flavours of the sauce. Do not stir this too often as the balls will break. Serve the Vegetable Balls in Tomato Sauce immediately on preparation.

You can serve along with Spring Onion and Red Capsicum Pasta or Creamy Herb Pasta .
