Top Review by Arichka

5 stars for potato balls and 1 star for gravy. Potato balls were out of this world,very tasty, I rolled them in corn flour which I bought in Indian food store and deep fried them in my deep fryer at 340 F. Gravy was awful,very salty,impossible to eat,perharps low sodium soy sause would improve this. We ate the potato balls but couldn't eat the gravy. Sorry.
