Sweet Bread Balls

What would you do with the leftover food you have? I have seen many of our food bloggers have published recipes with leftovers. I too use it in many ways.Here, my kids have a slogan "eat old, get old"! :) As a food blogger I get lots of chances to handle it, hm? ;)
I have met some personalities who do not touch leftovers.. If they are allergic or they have some health problems I would have agreed with them. But they do it for "no reasons"! They think it is Great! There are few others who send the leftovers to the poor neighbours , that too the next day!
Recently, my aunt sent an email with the link to the short, 6 minute movie CHICKEN A LA CARTE .(This is produced in 2005). When I saw it, I remembered my blog readers, and thought to inform them about it. I request the readers and other blogger friends to check the link if you haven't seen it before, and show it to your kids! I hope seeing this will encourage everyone to wipe tears of some misfortunate.. And we can thank God for giving us a good life!
Ok, this time the recipe is sweet bread balls, my cousin made this when I visited her. When tasted, I felt the absence of cardamom, so I added it when prepared my self. You can make this soon, if you have some unexpected guests! For the first time, I made this with the leftover bread crumbs and egg that remained after making cutlets!.. :) I don't know the actual name of this nalumani palaharam(tea time snack), so share with me if you know.. :)
