Instructions
 

For Boiling Noodles

  • Boil the water with 1 tsp salt and 2 tsp oil.
  • Add 1 packet of hakka noodles to it.
  • Cook on high flame till noodles get boiled.
  • In the meanwhile prepare the white sauce which is given in next section.
  • It took me 10-12 minutes to boil the noodles.
  • After boiling take out the noodles from hot water, put them in a strainer, and wash them under running water so that the cooking process stops.

For White sauce

  • Heat butter in a pan. keep the flame low otherwise butter might burn.
  • Add all purpose flour to it. Keep stirring it on low flame.
  • Let it be aromatic but the color should not change.
  • When aromatic, gradually add milk to it while stirring continuously.
  • Once you add all the milk, put the flame on high and stir continuously.
  • It will start thickening. You will observe that it is leaving the sides now. You need to continue stirring till you switch off the gas.
  • Switch off the gas. Add 1 cube of grated processed cheese, ¼ tsp salt and ¼ tsp black pepper powder to it.

For Bread Crumbs

  • Toast the breads in a oven or griddle.
  • Grind the breads in a mixer to make bread crumbs.
  • Your dry bread crumbs are ready. Instead of making bread crumbs at home, you can use ready bread crumbs also which are easily available in the market.

For Batter

  • In a bowl, take all purpose flour and cornflour. Add salt and black pepper powder to it.
  • Gradually add water while stirring it with whisk to make a smooth batter.
  • There should not be any lump in it as we want smooth batter.

For Noodles Balls

  • Take the noodles, in a bowl. Add finely chopped corriander, red chili powder, garam masala, salt, dry mango powder, chaat masala, black pepper powder to it.
  • While white sauce is still hot add it to noodles, mix well so that all the spices, noodles and white sauce are mixed well.
  • The Thick white sauce will give binding to the noodles so that you will be able to make the balls easily and the sauce will give the required texture, binding, and taste to the balls.
  • Once it is mixed, start making small balls out of it, you can grease your palm with little oil and make balls.
  • Dip the ball in batter, take out, put on bread crumbs, and coat it well with the bread crumbs. Ideally use one hand for dipping and another hand for coating bread crumbs.
  • Repeat the process twice. After coating with crumbs again put in batter and then crumbs, this way the balls will be coated well and after frying the layer will be crispy
  • Now heat the oil in a kadai and once oil is hot enough, put the balls one by one and fry. You can fry 6-7 balls at a time as you can see in the pic.
  • Flame should be medium to high as everything is cooked inside, we just need to make outer layer crispy.
  • Take out the balls and serve hot.

Notes

Notes-
  • If you plan to make this starter or snack, then you can prepare it a few hours in advance. When you want to eat, just take out the balls from freeze and deep fry.
  • I have used Hakka noodles as the main ingredient but the spices used are Indian and to give the required binding and texture to the ball, I have used thick white sauce which is from Italian cuisine. So actually, this is a fusion recipe that is very high on taste
