Follow these simple instructions before frying your balls.

1. When you fry the balls, the oil needs to be hot. Don't heat the oil on high flame. It should heat up slowly. If you heat the oil too fast, then your balls will turn black.
2. The best part of these fried items are the dusting, coating and breading. After preparing the balls roll it lightly in the flour and shake off the excess flour and dip it in the liquid coating. Always roll the balls lightly in the flour because heavy coating will not stick properly. Then dust the balls with the bread crumbs or powdered rusk.

Ridge Gourd Kootu - Peerkangai Kootu

Ridge gourd kootu - one of my favourite kootu dish for lunch. Naturally ridge gourd has a soft texture which is suitable for kootu dishes. Mostly we don't add onions, tomatoes and garlic for kootu dishes. For this ridge gourd kootu I have added both chana dal and moong dal. As the ridge gourd has soft texture, it gets cooked easily in a vessel so need for pressure cooking. The dals must be cooked in pressure cooker for the smoother consistency which will be perfect for kootu dishes. My Grandma gave me this idea to include both chana dal and moong dal for this kootu because ridge gourd has high water content moong dal gives thickness to it. After cooking the ridge gourd, the kootu is followed by adding the dals and the coconut paste. The coconut based kootu dishes are popular in most Tirunelveli districts. We all like any  kootu with the combination of dals and coconut small onions cumin paste. In my opinion any kootu dishes must have a mild flavours with a medium thick consi
