Minty Potato Balls

The first time I made this snack was for my mom's kitty party about 2 years back. Since then it has been a much loved snack that is quick and easy to put together in small as well as large batches.
The lemony mint flavor takes it away from the likes of aaloo tikkis.

A sure hit with kids. Give it a go!

Minty Potato Balls

This recipe uses 2 big potatoes and yields 10-12 medium sized balls.

Potatoes, boiled- 2 big
Mint leaves, chopped- 1 tbsp
Lemon juice- 2 tbsp
Semolina- about 3 tbsp
Corn flour- 1 tbsp
Salt and pepper for seasoning
Oil for deep frying


Mash potatoes in a bowl. Get rid of all lumps.

Add mint, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Mix well.

Make small balls of this mixture.

Make a slurry of cornflour using a tbsp water.

Dip each potato ball in cornflour slurry and coat well.

Next, roll each cornflour dipped potato ball in semolina and coat evenly.

Deep fry these balls and serve hot with chutney of your choice.
