Cooking Tips

  • Bread Selection: Opt for thicker bread slices as they hold up better when soaked and formed into balls.
  • Avoiding Sogginess: After dipping the bread in water, ensure to squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial to avoid soggy bread balls.
  • Chill Before Frying: Refrigerate the assembled bread balls for at least 30 minutes before frying to help them hold their shape better in the hot oil.
