Potato Cheese Balls

Well !!!! Who doesn't like Potato cheese balls. The crunchy outer texture and the gooey inside from the cheese makes it a most sought starter to many parties. Its easy to make, it tastes delicious and wait!!! Its kids friendly too. " It is a Package" I would say.

Its less spicy, and the idea of incorporating Cheese into an Indian cuisine which is filled with Indian spices is just extremely good.


The moment you feel the crunchiness from the outer layer, the softness of potato seeps in, and the very moment the gooeyness of the cheese covers up your tongue. Cheese burst I would say.


Ingredients


Potato 3 Boiled, peeled and mashed

Paneer grated 5 tablespoon

Cornflour 2 tablespoon

Coriander leaves Chopped

Salt as needed

Chilli powder 1/4 teaspoon

Garam masala powder 1/4 teaspoon

Mozzarella Cheese Cut into small cubes

All purpose flour 2 tablespoon

Bread crumbs 1/2 cup

Oil for frying


How to start?


In a bowl mix potato, paneer, salt, chilli powder, garam masala, coriander leaves and cornflour together. The dough should not be soggy. Add extra corn flour in that case. Make small balls from this mixture. Flatten the ball and keep a cube of mozzarella in the centre.


Now bring the ball together and shape it without any cracks. Make sure you do not press it too hard. Shape all the balls in the same manner.





In another bowl mix all purpose flour and water. Make it into a thin paste. Dip the balls in the flour paste and then roll them in the bread crumbs. Heat oil in a kadai. Deep fry till golden brown. Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
