-Now take each ball dip in the batter and then coat it with vermicelli.
-Heat oil in a wok and deep fry these balls till golden colour.
-Serve with tomato ketchup.
*Do not use fried vermicelli for coating because once you fry these balls they will turn very dark.
*If using long vermicelli just crumble them and make them into small pieces.
*You can use mashed potatoes instead of the bread slices  (in the filling).
