Fried Bread Potato balls/Fritters

Have some leftover bread?? Use it by making this wonderful snack!

Bread balls are delightful, mouth watering, fluffy snacks that groups of all age will love to have. It is basically a snack which is made by leftover bread filled with a mashed potato filling and coated by eggs and bread crumbs and then fried. They can be best served with yougurt dip/raita. I learned this snack from my mother in law after I got married. Just yumm!! I am in love with it since then. You can have them occasionally with tea. It is not actually that heavy, cox the egg coating on the bread prevents the bread from absorbing oil while frying and hence is light and tasty. Its a quick recipe and u can serve it in any of the evening parties. 

Here is its simple and easy recipe:

Mix boiled potatoes, all spices, onion and coriander leaves thoroughly. Adjust salt acc to ur taste.

Take a slice of bread; soak it in water and immediately take it out and drain its water by pressing very gently between your hands.

 Then take some mixture of potatoes, place it in the center and mold it in the form of a ball very very gently. You will end up into 10-12 bread balls. Its really easy. (You can also freeze them for future use :) )

It typically consists of dried mango powder, cumin seeds,black salt,coriander seeds,dried ginger,salt,black pepper,hing and chili powder, all crushed and combined together. Its easily available in markets. U can skip this ingredient in the above recipe. Althu it adds extra flavors :) Enjoy
