  • Potato – 3 nos (about 250 grams)
  • Cheddar / Parmesan Cheese – 1 cup
  • Dried Mint leaves – 1 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Pepper Powder – ¼ tsp
  • Egg White – 2 nos
  • Bread Crumbs – as required
  • Oil – 3 cups (675 ml)
  • How to Make Potato and Cheese Balls:

    1. Peel, clean and boil potatoes till tender and soft about 25 to 30 minutes. Drain, run cold water and allow to cool till suitable to handle with bare hands.
    2. Crumble the potatoes with your hands and mix in the dried mint leaves, salt, pepper powder and cheese.
    3. Roll into golf ball size.
    4. Store in fridge for about 30 minutes, or freezer for 10 minutes, this sets the cheese.
    5. Heat the oil between the temperature range of 300-375ºF (150-190ºC).
    6. Take 2 bowls, 1 with bread crumbs and other with egg whites.
    7. Take each ball carefully, roll in the egg white, and using the other hand roll in the bread crumbs, lower in the hot oil, carefully, turn around for about 2 minutes or so till golden brown.
    8. Gradually lower the heat to medium to prevent the potato from getting cooked before it gets brown.
    9. Serve hot and enjoy.
