  • Now you can start to shape your potato cheese balls.
  • Use an ice cream scoop or a spoon to scoop out about 2 tablespoons of potato then pat into a round patty. Cup your hand, place a cube of cheese inside, bring the potatoes up and around the cheese to cover making sure that potato surrounds all of the cheese.

  • Unfortunately, the next step is to fry the potato cheese balls. I do not want to share with you “unhealthy” dishes, however, the recipe tells us to fry. Can the potato cheese balls be baked? I have tried it and unfortunately the taste has not been very satisfying. I do not recommend it.


  • Heat cooking oil / sunflower oil over medium heat and fry them 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.


Your potato cheese balls are ready to enjoy 👌



Serve it with hot chili sauce or garlic sauce.
