Note:

  • If you are having Fresh green peas then no need to soak in water.You can directly boil.

Tip:

  • If you soak Bread slices more in water then it is not possible to make like balls.So,what i did is first i soaked all the four sides in the water and i just sprinkled water in the middle of the bread slice .so,that the bread slice cannot absorb more water and squeezed  the water out.
