NOTE: do not fry the balls for too long! They must not be very brown. Be careful when taking out and putting in the balls, so they don't get punctured. With the help of a spoon, move the balls in a circular motion in one direction, then pour a little oil over them. As soon as they get a light golden brown color, take them out of the oil as soon as possible.
