Potato Cheese Corn Balls

Potato Cheese Corn Balls brings back my good old school time memories. My best friend & I frequented a place down in south Mumbai & cheese corn balls was one among our regular orders, esp our all-time-favorite combination order of cheese corn balls, onion rings, enchilada, nachos & pizza. Ice on the cake, we used to complete the meal by ordering a sizzling brownie sundae. Slurppp!!  

There are many versions of potato cheese corn balls, some like to crush the corn & add but I like to keep it & feel the kernel as I bite. Also I like the simpler way of mixing everything together rather than stuffing the cheese & corn inside. 

3-4 medium/small sized potatoes boiled & mashed
1 cup of boiled corn kernels
1 cup of grated cheese (am using combination of mild cheddar & mozzarella cheese)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp chaat masala
2 tbsp coriander finely chopped
2 green chilies finely chopped
1-2 cups of bread crumbs
salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


  • Mash the potatoes & to them add all the remaining ingredients except oil. 
  • Add bread crumbs as required & mix to make a firm dough.  Make small balls & keep aside. 
  • Heat oil in a vessel & once hot deep fry the balls on medium flame till they are golden brown in color. 
  • Remove on tissue/absorbent paper to get rid of the excess oil. 
That's it!! Our Potato cheese corn balls are ready. Serve them hot with Ketchup or Green Chutney

I like to make them small in size & prick a toothpick just before serving. Its just easy to pick one & put it in your mouth. 
Happy Cooking!!

    1. Thanks Smita, if your cheese corn balls are bursting, add more bread crumbs to it and adjust the seasoning. that should do the trick. would love to hear how they turn out :)
