Finally, I have a perfect recipe for Indian-style delicious potato cheese balls with a crispy coating of melting cheese oozing through it. Pair it with ketchup or mayo garlic sauce and you'll love it.
All the ingredients are simple and pantry friendly. Few spices not only make this recipe simple but flavourful as they allow the cheese flavor to shine.
Boil potatoes in a large pot with salt until al dente. Peel off the skin and mash potatoes until smooth. Add all ingredients of seasoning to the mashed potato and mix well.
Cut cheese into 25 cubes. Season the cheese with chili, dried basil, and pepper. Set aside.
Roll out about 25 small balls from the potato mixture. Now insert cheese cubes into each ball. Make sure the cheese cube is completely covered with potato.
Roll all potato balls first in cornflour and set aside.
Beat eggs with salt, red chili powder, and water. Then roll each ball in egg wash.
Roll in bread crumbs. For double coating, dip each ball again in egg wash. And then in bread crumbs. Place balls in the fridge for 30 minutes so they are firm.
Deep fry potato cheese ball in small batches on medium heat for 2-3 minutes then increase heat and fry on high heat for 1-2 minutes until golden and crispy.
