Steps In Making Potato Cheese Balls

  1. In a large bowl add boiled potatoes. Now with the help of a potato masher or hand mash the potatoes making sure no lumps are left.
  2. Now add all the finely chopped veggies- onion, capsicum, green chillies and fresh coriander.
  3. Further add all the dry spices- red chilli flakes, crushed black pepper, oregano and salt.
  4. Lastly add grated cheese and mix till everything is well combined.
  5. Take a tablespoon of potato cheese ball mixture in your palm and give it a round shape. Now with your thumb give an impression in the center and insert it with a mozzarella cheese cube. Cover the cheese cube properly from everywhere and give it a round shape.
  6. Similarly shape all the potato cheese balls.
  7. To coat the cheese balls we need to prepare the slurry. In a bowl add corn flour, refined flour and water and mix well. It should have medium consistency, not very thin nor very thick.
  8. Now coat the cheese balls in the bread crumbs and then roll them in the corn flour slurry. Now once again roll them in the bread crumbs making sure its coated evenly from everywhere.
  9. Similarly make the rest of them and let them rest in the refrigerator for some time.
  10. In a pan over medium flame add oil and once it becomes medium hot add the potato cheese balls in it. Fry them for 3-4 minutes on medium flame, till they get a golden crust.
  11. Serve immediately with ketchup or garam-garam chai/tea.

Recipe Notes

  • I have added grated processed cheese in the mixture, you can use cheddar or mozzarella too.
  • Coat the cheese balls in the slurry and the bread crumbs well, else the cheese might ooze out while frying.
  • I have coated the cheese balls with bread crumbs twice for a crispy texture.
  • Let the potato cheese balls rest in the refrigerator for minimum 10 minutes to firm up.
  • Always fry these on medium flame else they might cook from the outside but the inside cheese won’t melt.
