Crispy and golden on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside, these delectable deep-fried Potato and Cheese Balls are everyone’s favorite.  A simple cheesy snack made from potato and mozzarella cheese stuffing. It can be ideal evening snacks. If you need that melted cheesy goodness in the center of your cheese balls, always use mozzarella or good-quality pizza cheese. No other cheese will give you the same result. For spice level, I used crushed red chilli flakes, crushed corn pepper. Italian seasoning gives the nice aroma that exactly same as restaurant one. Nothing can beat the texture and crispness of deep-fried potato cheese balls. If you are looking for authentic café-style cheese balls then stick to the deep-frying technique. Potato Cheese Balls are incomplete without an excellent dipping sauce. Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce for a café-style snacking experience at home. We can prepare as bulk and stored in air tight container and stored for maximum 5 days. In the busy morning we can prepare for kids snack box.

  • We need slightly hard-boiled potatoes for making cheese balls.
  • Do not reduce cheese or potato as these two mainly binding agents of these balls.
  • Also, maida and corn flour helps in binding.
  • The oil for frying had to be the perfect temperature the entire time for all the balls to fry successfully.
  • Instead of bread crumps use crushed cornflakes to give crispy outer coating
  • Cheese Balls are best served and enjoyed piping hot. The cheese stuffed inside is gooey, and the exterior is crisp. After a few hours, potato cheese balls turn a bit soggy and lose their crunch
