POTATO VERMICELLI BALLS

It’s been a couple of days since I blogged.After Vishu celebrations I  was quite stuck up with a hectic schedule. I guess you all will find this snack refreshing..
4 medium sized potatoes
2 large onions finely cut in small pieces
3-4 green chillies diced
1/2 cup of vermicelli lightly crushed
1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
1 tsp red chilly powder
1/2 tsp yellow turmeric powder
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs scrambled
salt to taste
oil for frying
  • Boil the potatoes with 1/2  a teaspoon of turmeric powder and salt .Mash them well when they are well cooked. 
  • In a heavy bottomed pan heat 1 tbsp oil and  and  saute the onions with green chillies.Stir till the onions turn light brown.Add the mashed potatoes and scrambled eggs and mix well.
  • Add the chilli powder and the garam masala powder and stir well adding the bread crumbs before turning off the flame.
  • When the mix cools make lemon sized balls .Roll the balls in the vermicelli and deep fry them in oil.
  • Tomato ketchups go fine with these vermicelli balls.

    Wellcome back!
    very nice your balls but what are vermicelli for you? For me they are a kind of pasta (something like spaghetti)but I'm afraid you mean something different….

    This dish seems to be very tasty and would appeal even to my kids. I'll have to include this in my future menus…
