Heat the oil in a deep-fat fryer or a large wok. You can test the heat of the oil with a small cube of bread. Simply add to the oil and if the bread turns golden-brown in 30 seconds the temperature is ideal. As always, keep a close eye on hot oil.
Dip the floured balls into the batter and gently drop each one into the hot oil. Deep fry for 3-4 mins or until crisp and golden brown. Lift out with a slotted spoon, and drain on kitchen paper. Serve hot with the dipping sauce.
