Krishna's Butterball in Boston?

Has anyone seen this around here? I just recently heard of it.

        if plantainleaf's recipe linked below is typical, there is alot less butter in these balls than in normal pastry dough for pies. maybe it tastes like alot of ghee because they are fried....

        uzbekfoodie, your best bet would be to call the various Indian markets, many of which sell an array of Indian sweets from an lndian vendor in N.J. I'm thinking of the shop in Arlington Center on the left if you're heading North.
