Potato Balls

 These potato balls are yummy and easy to prepare. These potato balls can be good starters with some hot and spicy soups. Good for all age group because it is soft, filled with carrots and potatoes and flattened rice. I have tried this Potato balls for Recipe super stars group to cheer them up.

Let us see the recipe now :

Method :

1. Wash and boil potatoes. Leave it for cooling. Peel off the outer layer.


2. Wash and grate carrots, cut coriander leaves, methi leaves and green chilly. Wash and remove the outer layer of ginger and wash it again. Grate it. Keep it aside.

10. Let it turn golden brown. Remove the potato balls from the oil and put it on a kitchen tissue


11. Cut a carrot as small stick and insert the carrot piece edge in  potato balls when it is hot Or the ball may break while inserting the carrot stick.
 Serve them as a starter with tomato ketch up or chutney.
