    wont the bread opens up? how can u keep that in ball form

    thx everyone. my mouth waters too now that i see them.

    @mahrukh wet the bread well and thoroughly bind it with potato stuffing. You can let it air dry if its too wet before deep frying.
    if you seal it well, the chances of opening are very less.
