2. Take small portions and roll in the dry maida.
3. Shallow fry in enough oil till golden brown on all sides. Drain oil and keep aside.
4. For the sauce, heat oil in a pan and drop in the garlic. Saute but leave them a little crunchy.

  1. Wow.. that recipe sure looks tempting! Can a similar recipe be tried using fish? I recently tried raw fish online from one of the best online live fish store in Mumbai. Since then I have become a fan of healthy eating & fish.
