I am still nostalgic about the time when I started food blogging (some 7 years back) and there were altogether a few dozen serious bloggers that were around. However, thanks to the penetration of the Internet, now a days I come across at least a dozen new bloggers per week who are so much well informed about blog statistics/ views per post calculations and promoting their recipes on different platforms smartly. This week only one of my good friend raised up an issue on FB, upon asking a query she was puzzled to get many comments as "...." Well seriously even I wasn't aware of it ! Later came to know it means "following" :-D This shows how dumb I am in this fast moving food blogging world. I think it’s a very encouraging sign for the days to come where food can be a bonding factor and a platform for friendship.
Coming back to this easy Cheesy Corn Balls recipe which is very famous with kids party. Crunchy from outside and cheesy from the center. Really simple way to please anyone.
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
1/4 cup Cheddar, grated
1/4 cup All purpose flour
1 big boiled Potato
1/2 cup Corn
2 Green chilies, finely chopped
2 tbsp Cornflour
1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp Oregano powder
Salt to taste
Freshly grounded Pepper powder
Oil for frying
In a mixing bowl put all varieties of cheese and mix with a fork. Add pepper powder and salt to taste and mix thoroughly. In a coffee grinder take corn and grind to a coarse paste.
Take another bowl and knead the boiled potato, corn, oregano along with all purpose flour and yes sprinkle some salt again. Now add the cheese mixture to it and make small balls of same size.
Make a paste of cornflour with 2-3 tsp water, dip the balls in the cornflour paste and coat with breadcrumbs, shaking off the excess and place them in dry plate.
In a large deep frying pan, heat oil and fry them in small batches till golden brown for 2 minutes. Do toss them in between so that they get cooked evenly.
Lift them out wit a slotted spoon and place the cheese balls over a kitchen towel. They are best eaten right away so serve them with sauce or mayo.
