2 large potatoes, 1/2 cup grated cheese,1 tsp crushed pepper powder, 1tsp cumin powder, 1 pinch garam masala, 2 tbs fresh coriander leaves, 4 tbs besan, 2 pinch of black salt and oil for frying
To the mashed potatoes, add black pepper, crushed or black pepper powder, cumin powder, a pinch of garam masala (optional) and chopped coriander leaves. Add gram flour (besan). You can also add all purpose flour or cornstarch (corn flour).Mix very well. Then add the grated cheese and two pinches of black salt. Add salt accordingly as cheese already has salt. You can even add rock salt or regular salt instead of black salt. Mix the cheese with the rest of the potato mixture very well. Check the taste and add more salt or crushed black pepper if required. Make small balls from the mixture and make one tiny ball to test while frying. (The oil has to be hot, otherwise the cheese balls may break.) Fry them till they are evenly golden all over and crisp. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or coriander chutney or mint chutney or any dip of your choice. For best taste serve them hot as soon as they are prepared.
