Shrimp Balls - Easiest and Yummiest Snack

Here is a very quick post, without much introduction. This is a easiest version of a yummy snack.

This was done one evening in a hurry when two of my friends suddenly said one hour ahead that they are visiting. I know, we all have certain friends who do not bother letting you know before that they are showing up because they know for sure that you will have a gala time with them (and they really do not care for the mess all around the house).

Priya of The Humpty Dumpty Kitchen (check out her awesome blog) wanted the recipe, so here you go.

(Makes around 14 balls)

Shrimp (medium size) - 10-12
Gram flour - 1&1/2 tabespoon
Onions - 1 medium, chopped fine
Chillies - 2, chopped (or as many as you like)
Gren Pepper - 1 medium, finely chopped
Ginger - 1 teaspoon, grated
Black pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil to fry

Cut the shrimps into small pieces. If you want you can pulse it in mixer. I did not do that though.

Except oil, add all the ingredients together. You do not have to add water, shrimps usually will release enough water. Mix them all well.

Make medium size balls. Round it even in between the palms.

Shallow fry the shrimp balls in low to medium flame, turning often, so that the shrimps get well cooked.

Your shrimp balls are ready. Yes, seriously! It is that easy.

Have it with or without tea or coffee.


You can add cilantro finely chopped to it. It makes it even tastier,

You can substitute shrimp with crumbled paneer also, for a veg snack.

  1. Sanhita, thank you so so much! I love these shrimp balls. Been a long time since we had shrimp. Going to check if they have it in our usual store this weekend. And shrimp balls tops my to-do list :) The paneer version will also come in handy for me :)
