Cheesy Vegetable Balls

Cheesy Vegetable Balls

Nehal loves these cheesy vegetable balls, I prepared last evening along with water melon juice. Very similar to the ‘Potato Nests’ recipe with a bit of variation and a good combination of flavors. Makes for a good starter or an evening snack and goes great with tomato sauce.

Before deep frying

Cheesy Vegetable Balls Recipe

Recipe Source: My recipe files

Prep & Cooking: 25-30 mts



2 potatoes, boiled and mashed

1 grated carrot

fistful boiled green peas

1-2 green chilli finely chopped (adjust)

1/2 tsp chaat masala

1 1/2 tbsps roasted peanut pwd

3 large bread slices, dip in water, squeeze out water and crumble

1 1/2 tbsps coriander leaves, chopped

3 tbsps grated cheese (I used Amul cheese cubes)

salt to taste

oil for deep frying

For coating:

1 beaten egg

pinch of salt

bread crumbs for coating

1 Combine mashed potatoes, green peas, grated carrot, crumbled bread, grated cheese, chaat masala, green chillis, peanut pwd, salt and coriander leaves. Prepare lemon sized balls.
2 In a small bowl, beat an egg along with a pinch of salt. Dip each ball into the egg mixture and roll in the bread crumbs and keep aside.
3 Heat oil for deep frying in a heavy bottomed vessel. Once it piping hot, reduce flame and place the balls into the hot oil and deep fry on medium flame to high flame till they turn golden brown. Remove onto absorbent paper and then place them on a baking sheet and place in warm oven till you serve them. This will ensure they are crisp and fresher tasting.
4 Serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney.

    Gud Job! :)

    Sure you can replace egg with cornflour-maida batter. Take 1/2 tbsp each of maida and cornflour, add a pinch of salt and water to make a flowing batter. Dip the balls in this batter, roll in bread crumbs and deep fry.

  11. Hi Saillu…

    Yesterday i made this cheese balls and it comes out good in taste, but the bread crumbs soaks too much oil so it becoems very oily and the crumbs was sticking in hands while eating… and one big promblem was that the balls was cracked when put it into the oil…It becomes too messy and disapointing….

    Help me please..

  12. If there is too much moisture in the balls, it will happen. Keep the balls in the fridge for half an hour, bring to room temperature and deep fry.
