Birds nest balls

Good morning. Welcome the month of february. Yesterday was total fun watching the lunar eclipse andrelishing this yummy snack. Its something different from cutlet but mostly looks like cutlet though. Its called birds nest because it looks like nest once it is opened. Kids will surely love it. Apt for evening snacks or even party snacks.i have just used potato masala that we make for masal dosa which means we can use the left over masala of masal dosa. We can also use bhaji made for poori. I once upon a time saw this recipe or idea made by menu Rani chellam, when i was in school. Since that time, i wanted to make this dish. Now my daughter enjoyed it after coming from school.
