Here I share with you one of the recipes of making Potato Balls at home. This is a melt in the mouth snack ball which you and your kids will also love for sure and is a savory tea time snack.)
Potato – 3 nos (boiled and mashed)
Spring Onion – 3 stalks (finely chopped green part)
Corn flour – 3-6 tbsp
All Purpose Flour – 3-6 tbsp
Egg – 1 no
Butter – 1 tbsp
Salt – to taste
Pepper powder – 2 tsp
Baking Soda – ½ tsp
Method of preparation
Into the bowl of mashed potato, add the egg, butter, baking Soda, pepper, salt, corn flour and all-purpose flour. Mix very well with hand. Add the chopped spring onion and mix well again. (Alternatively you can use any other greens like spinach etc). Spring onion gives a very good flavor for the balls though. Make sure that the potato batter is tight enough for you to make balls. The quantity may vary depending on the potato you are using. If you feel it is loose, add extra corn flour and flour.
Now grease your palm with oil and make equal sized balls of potato, preferably small balls. Make sure you grease your hand each time for the ease of ball making. Now keep a metal kadai on stove into which goes the oil for heating. Once the oil is real hot, reduce the flame to medium and add the balls carefully, one by one, into the oil and fry until golden brown, turning each side. Once done, remove the balls from oil into a strainer.

Arrange tooth picks on each ball and serve hot by sprinkling chopped spring onion on the balls and with a side dip of chilly sauce.
