The recipe is good, but when you drop the balls in hot oil, it may spurt. Using fresh coconut is the reason. In my recipe, I have used desicated coconut. If using fresh coconut, first fry it without oil till the water evaporates. Then use.

I think there is a problem with the ingrediants.there are health and safty reasons even to try to make it.when i tried it the whole thing exploded.on discusing with my mom i was told that having coconut in such a receipe makes it dangerous to even attempt to prepare.so please do not try to make it
