    Amanda in Aberdeen's Note:

    Crunchy fried dough balls served with hot salsa a Tapas favorite, based on a recipe from "Spanish Tapas" by Silvana Franco. I think I could happily live on Tapas.

      So tasty! will be making this again and again. Halved the recipe as there was only two of us eating. I didnt seive the sauce, just plonked it in the pan. Also didnt have red chillies so added some small green pepper and chilli powder instead. The dough balls turned out great. Thanks for putting this recipe on here!

      This turned out beautifully, I have never made dough balls before and was really pleased with the outcome. The salsa was gorgeous! Instead of sugar I used a squirt of honey. My husband loved it too, all in all a great success, looking forward to making it again soon. Thanks for the recipe.

      This was just incredible! It was a little bit of work, but I did it all ahead of time and just took it all out of the fridge, heated it up and served. Lots of great reviews! Thank you for submitting this recipe.
