Nimi's Culinary Ventures: POTATO VERMICELLI BALLS

May 4, 2010


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....
