    This is a great recipe but I no longer deep fry any thing in oil. I used my Air Fryer for this recipe. I preheated it for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F. Then placed the shimp balls on a rack inside the Air Fryer and sprayed them lightly with an Olive Oil spray. I cooked them for 6 minutes at 400 degrees F. Open the door and turned them over, sprayed the other side and cooked them for another 4 - 6 minutes. They were delicious and not dripping in oil.

    We used to eat these in India on rainy evenings. . . something all my cousins and I always looked forward to. But I didn't know how to make them. Thanks for the recipe. It tasted just like my mothers. Only I would give it more than just one pulse in the food processor. But that did not change the taste!
