Cheese Ball Recipe

Cheese Balls | Cheesy Balls

Cheese ball makes an amazing starter. Balls are prepared with mashed potatoes, cheese, and spices. We can also add desired vegetables. I have used carrots, onions, and capsicum along with potatoes.

These balls are filled with grated cheese from inside. The balls are then deep-fried. You can also bake them. But, it will taste crispier and tasty when deep-fried.

This is enjoyed by people of all age groups. I have shared an easy step-by-step recipe that would help you to make this awesome starter.

       Making Balls

  • Apply oil on clean hands and make small balls of the dough.
  • Greasing your hands will ensure the dough does not stick to your hands and will also get rolled easily.
  • Take bread crumbs in a big-sized bowl and put cheese balls one by one into the bowl.
  • Roll the balls in breadcrumbs till they are evenly coated from all sides.
  • Keep the balls in breadcrumbs for 1 minute so that the bread crumbs absorb moisture from the balls.
  • Lightly press each ball so that breadcrumbs can get coated properly with balls and place the coated balls on a separate plate. With this, the cheese balls will be more crispy.
  • At this stage, you may also place these balls in an airtight container or zip-locked plastic pouch and store these balls in a deep freezer for 15-20 days. When you want to fry these balls, place them outside the freezer for 30 minutes before use.

  • Make a slurry of medium consistency using cornflour, maida, and salt with water in a bowl as a slurry of high consistency makes the ball’s surface hard.
  • Dip the cheese balls in the slurry.
  • After that, we will put the cheese balls in breadcrumbs again and roll them with light hands.
    Roll the balls in breadcrumbs till they are evenly coated from all sides.
  • The balls should remain in breadcrumbs for 1 minute so that the bread crumbs absorb moisture from the balls.

       Frying the balls

  • Heat oil in a pan. Deep fry the balls on medium flame till they become golden brown.
    Fry only 3-4 balls in a pan at one time.
  • While frying, when balls start making a sound, it means balls are fried and ready or when the balls become golden-brown in color (whichever is earlier), take out the balls one by one and place them on a wire mesh(instead of a plate).
  • Wire Mesh(steel ki jali) will help the cutlets remain crispy as it will remove the heat from all sides.
  • Place the cheese balls on tissue paper to soak extra oil from the balls.
