How to Make Potato and Cheese Balls

  • 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.
  • Crumble the potatoes with your hands and mix in the dried mint leaves, salt, pepper powder and cheese.
  • Roll into golf ball size.
  • Store in fridge for about 30 minutes, or freezer for 10 minutes, this sets the cheese.
  • Heat the oil between the temperature range of 300-375ºF (150-190ºC).
  • Take 2 bowls, 1 with bread crumbs and other with egg whites.
  • 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.
  • Gradually lower the heat to medium to prevent the potato from getting cooked before it gets brown.
  • Serve hot and enjoy.
