Fried Vegetable Balls is 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 batter and bread crumbs gives the Fried Vegetable Balls an enticingly crunchy top layer, which slowly gives way to a succulent and spicy filling as you bite into it. Relish this starter hot and fresh, with tomato ketchup.
