4 boiled potatoes
1 cup grated processed cheese/or 2 cheese slices cut into small pieces
1 green chilies, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoon fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
2 tablespoon bread crumbs
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste
Mash the boiled potatoes in a bowl.
Add finely chopped green chilies, red chili powder,turmeric powder, finely chopped fresh coriander leaves, bread crumbs and salt to taste.
Mix all the ingredients very well and keep aside. Now heat good amount of oil in a frying pan. Divide the potato mixture in small balls or portions. You can make about 12 balls from this quantity of mixture.
Take some oil in your palms, get one ball and smoothly round it, make a small hole in center and stuff good amount of grated cheese or small cheese piece in it.
Now close the ball carefully from all the sides and in such way keep making all the balls and keep aside. Roll the ball in bread crumb.
When the oil is heated properly. Now drop 2-3 balls in hot oil and keep the flame from high to medium. It is very important to cook these balls on medium flame, so that you can enjoy the melted cheese and properly cooked potato mixture while eating. Keep frying and flipping for 2-4 minutes, till the balls turns out golden brown in color.
Drain on oil absorbent paper napkins.
Serve immediately with Dip, Sauce or Chutney of your choice.
If you do not want to deep fry these potato cheese balls, then you can bake them in oven at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Will try this next time around :)
