Keep the balls in the refrigerator for 15 minutes because it will get firm and hold a round structure perfectly, and it will be easy to steam.


Next, transfer the prepared balls in a deep-fried pan on a medium flame and add a tablespoon of butter in it and cover it with lid for 15 to 20 minutes or until the meatballs get a golden brown color and turn crispy.
