Assemble spaghetti mixture

  • Drain excess water in a colander and transfer spaghetti to white sauce. Also add shredded chicken and cheese. Mix well. (Keep mixture in fridge to chilli while you chop veggies.)
  • When white sauce mixture is cool to room temperature add chopped vegetables and red chilli sauce. ( Keep in fridge again to chill until needed chilled mixture is easy to roll.)

Bread crumb double coating:

  • Whisk 2 eggs with salt, 1 tablespoon water and red chilli powder. Set aside.
  • Keep a plate ready with flour. Fill ¼ cup of tightly packed spaghetti mixture and pour over flour. Roll in flour and form 12 balls.
  • Now roll each ball in egg mixture then bread crumb. Roll again in egg mixture and bread crumbs to form a double coating of bread crumbs.

To Fry

  • Or store in fridge for up to 24 hours and fry as needed.
  • Serve hot with spicy tomato ketchup and lemon wedges.
