Tips to make cheese balls

1. Boil potatoes just until done without making them besides doughy or bathetic. Over cooked or doughy potatoes will need more bread crumb to absorb the moisture. This alters the preference of the brood .
2. I have flavored the cheese balls with pepper, crimson chili flakes, italian herb and allspice gunpowder .
To give an indian equal you can just use kasuri methi and garam masala. But the combination of herb & spices I use lend exceptionally flavorful and the best potato cheese balls .
3. I have used cheddar cheese. however you can replace it with mozzarella cheese .

How to make these healthier?

1. If you do not prefer breaded snacks then skip rolling the balls in bread crumb. Just roll them in corn starch and fry or bake them .
2. For healthier option, I make these cheese balls by avoiding boodle crumbs completely. I use coarse poha powder for the potato mix as good for the crust .
To make your own poha powder, barely pulse the thick or medium assortment poha in a blender jar. The powderize must be like all right rava or suji .
3. To avoid corn starch, just replace it with any other unharmed grain flour. Just make certain the flour is very fine or placid .
4. Avoid trench electrocute and bake them at 200 C in a preheat oven for 15 mins .


  1. Instead of boiled potatoes, you can use sweet potatoes. The cheese balls will turn sweeter in that case.
  2. You can skip the potatoes and just use plain bread to wrap the cheese cubes. For this cut each bread to 2 triangles and remove the browns. Moisten the bread slice with milk or water until soft. Then place the cheese cube in the center and bring the sides together and roll it to a ball. Then roll it in dry flour and rest for a while. Fry or bake these.
  3. Make chicken cheese balls, by rolling the cheese cubes in minced chicken. Add 1 large potato for binding. Follow the recipe as is and bake them in oven. I haven’t tried these deep frying.

Fry Cheese Balls

  • Drop a small piece of the potato mixture to check if the oil is hot enough. It has to come up immediately without browning. This is the right temperature.

  • Regulate the flame to medium. Gently slide the balls one by one & do not disturb them for 1 to 2 mins.

  • Gently stir them and fry until golden and crisp. 

  • Serve potato cheese balls hot with any dip or sauce.

  • Place the cheese balls over the rack and bake them for 15 mins. Adjust the timings as needed.

  • You can pan fry them in 2 batches using 2 to 3 tbsps oil per batch.

  • Some amount of bread crumbs will come off the balls and it is just okay. They will still be good.


  • Please do not alter the quantities of potato to cheese. Using less potato to make the cheese balls will mess up while baking or frying. The cheese may come out.
  • To avoid breakage of the balls spread the potato patty evenly and roll it gently. An evenly spreaded patty and evenly rolled ball will not mess up the cheese while frying.
  • If the cheese is not covered well with the potato mixture the cheese is likely to come out while frying.
  • Cheese balls may break if disturbed immediately after adding to oil. If you listen to a crackling noise while frying, quickly remove the ball from oil and keep it separately. Fry it towards the end to prevent messing up the oil.
