Soak bread in water, enough to dampen for 2 hours. Drain the bread of any excess water.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together with fingers, making sure everything is mixed very well.

Step 3

Start to roll into meatballs a little bigger than the size of a golf ball. You should get about 12 to 15 meatballs.

Step 4

Add 4 cups of oil to a medium size fry pan. Heat oil on medium flame. When oil is hot, add 6 or 7 meatballs to the pan.

Make sure there is room between meatballs for even cooking. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes.

Step 6

Place meatballs on a brown paper bag to drain off the oil.
