Foodies are always on a quest for something new… something different! So in today’s post we are going to make an exciting snack that’s a fusion of European and Indian culinary styles – a delicious item called Cheese and Potato Sticks.
Here are the ingredients that you will require – very simple ingredients; this makes it possible to prepare this recipe quickly and easily.
Potatoes: 3, medium sized
Cheese: 100 grams
Onion: 1, small
Flour: 2 tablespoons
Mustard Oil: 4 tablespoons
Breadcrumbs: 50 gram
Black Pepper Powder: Half a teaspoon
Salt: to taste
The quantities mentioned above are for two servings. Adjust the quantities proportionately to suit the number of servings that you require.
Peel, wash and boil the potatoes. When they are done (use a fork to check) cut the potatoes into small pieces.
Peel, wash and finely chop the onion.
Cut the cheese into small strips, around half-an-inch in length.
In a mixing bowl, add the potatoes, onion, black pepper and salt. Use a fork to mash the potatoes and mix the ingredients well. Keep aside.
Use your hands to shape a portion of the potato mixture into a palm-sized ball. Flatten the ball into a round shape and place some cheese strips in the middle. Carefully roll the potato mixture around the cheese strips. Do this till all the cheese strips and potato mixture are used up. Keep aside.
In a mixing bowl, break and beat the eggs. Add the flour and mix well.
On a plate or a tray spread out the breadcrumbs.
Heat the Mustard Oil in a pan on a High flame till the oil reaches its smoking point and emits puffs of deliciously aromatic white smoke. Reduce the flame to Medium.
Now dip each potato mixture-coated cheese stick into the egg-flour mixture, and then roll it on the breadcrumbs making sure that each stick is evenly coated.
Now carefully fry each stick till it turns golden brown in colour. Place the fried sticks on paper towels to drain the excess oil, if any.
There you are! These unique and delightfully different Cheese and Potato Sticks are now ready to be served. Enjoy them with ketchup, mayonnaise or any other dip of your choice.
