Evening time snacks are always a real challenge for mothers. If you give, idli or dosa or pulkas – kids won’t prefer all the time. As soon as they return from school, they want some fried or baked goodies to munch especially before starting their homework! Some sort of bribe you can say! What to do? You have to forego your calorie counting and start indulge in deep fried snacks.

Recipe: Vegetable Cheese Balls
Preparation Time: 1 hour
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 12-15
Serves: A family of 4
Shelf life: The balls can be prepared and frozen for 15 days
Recipe by: Viji

2 medium Potatoes
1 cup of grated Carrot, shredded Cabbage, and Peas
2 Green Chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp grated Ginger
1 tbsp chopped Mint Leaves
1 tbsp chopped Coriander Leaves
2 tsp Garam Masal Powder
1 tsp Amchur Powder
2 tbsp Sunflower and Flaxseeds Meal (grind the seeds in the mixer)
3 Brown Bread Slices
50 gms grated Cheddar Cheese
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

For coating:

Mix one tbsp Corn Starch or Arrow Root Flour or Maida/All Purpose Flour in ½ cup water
Mixture of Oats, Wheetabix, Bread crumbs with a pinch of Salt

Special Utensils:
A deep frying pan

  1. Cook potato 3/4th and grate once it is cool. I prefer grating instead of mashing.
  2. Combine the rest of the ingredients. Prepare oblong shaped balls.
  3. Gently dip them in flour batter and coat them with the mixture prepared and freeze them for 1 hour at least.
  4. Heat the oil and deep-fry them on medium heat till crisp. Serve hot with tomato sauce.
