    Cooking Procedure

    1. Mix together rice, potato, carrots, ginger garlic paste, onions, green chilies, chopped coriander, turmeric powder, salt, sugar, red chili paste, soy sauce and lime juice. Add the rice flour if the mix is too soft, so that they won’t break while frying.

    2. Scoop 2 tbl spoons of the mix, and make round balls. Roll the balls over the chopped peanuts. Make sure they are evenly coated.

    4. Heat the oil in a deep pan. Deep fry the peanut balls until crisp.
