Makes: 12-14 corn cheese balls
Prep: 20 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Ingredients to make Corn Cheese Balls
2 large-ish potatoes, boiled and mashed
½ cup corn kernels
2 tsp rice flour*
½ tsp dry mango powder / amchur
½ tsp red chilli flakes
½ tsp black pepper powder
Salt to taste
12-14 tiny cubes of cheddar / mozzarella cheese
Method of making Corn Cheese Balls
Lightly pound the corn kernels, enough for the kernels to open, so they don’t burst when frying. Add mashed potatoes, rice flour (to lend an extra crunch to the corn cheese balls), spices and salt. Mix well.
Take a tablespoon of the potato and corn mix on to your palm and flatten. Place a cube of mozzarella / cheddar (or cheese of choice) in the middle and bring the mix together to form a tight ball.
Refrigerate the corn cheese balls for an hour. Fry and serve hot, while the cheese melts away! :)
Serve corn cheese balls with a thousand island dip, mint chutney or condiment of choice.
