  1. Always fry the veg balls on medium heat. If they are fried on a high heat, then only the outside layer will get cooked and inside it will be raw. Similarly, if fried on a low heat, they will absorb oil and turn soggy.
  2. Do not grate the vegetables in advance otherwise they will be soggy and you won't be able to make a dough. Always ensure to squeeze little extra water with your hands before adding all purpose flour and corn flour. You can add this squeezed water while making sauce.
