Corn and cheese with potato is a perfect combo and with added simple ingredients, this is a great kid’s snack recipe also party please. We had this only once at cream centre. It was a get together and I tasted only one but was really delicious. After that I have attempted once with a complicated recipe and did not turn out well. This time I tried with this recipe and kept it simple with minimum ingredients. It turned out tasty, of course can it go wrong? Tongue

Corn cheese balls recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Starter
Prep Time:  15 mins    |  Cook time: 35 mins     |  Serves: 3


Sweet corn, cooked – 3/4 cup

Cheese, grated – 1 cup

Potato – 1

Corn starch (white corn flour) – 1/2 tbsp

All purpose flour – 1/2 tbsp

Green chilli – 1

Coriander leaves, chopped – 2 tbsp

Black pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

Salt – As needed

Oil – To deep fry

For coating

All purpose flour – 2 tbsp

Bread crumbs – As needed


  1. Cook potato, peel and mash it well. Boil sweet corn until soft, drain, keep aside. Finely chop green chilli and coriander leaves. In a mixing bowl, mix these ingredients along with cheese, corn flour, all purpose flour, pepper, salt.
  2. 1-mix
  3. Roll to equal sized balls. Make a smooth paste with 2 tbsp purpose flour and required water. It should be like a batter. Not thin not too thick.
  4. 2-roll
  5. I rolled the balls in corn starch (optional, you can skip) and then dipped in the all purpose flour paste.
  6. 3-dip
  7. Roll this in bread crumbs to coat evenly on all sides.
  8. 4-roll
  9. Arrange in a plate. Heat oil in a kadai and once the oil is hot, drop few balls at a time. Cook in medium flame and drain in paper towel once golden.
  10. 5-fry
  11. Keep turning in between gently to ensure even browning. Once done, drain to paper towels.
  12. Untitled-6


    • Potatoes should be cooked just right, there should not be water retained in it. I cooked in microwave oven for 3 mins, with skin. Turn each minute to ensure even cooking.
    • Even sweet corn should be boiled properly and drained completely.
    • You can even add little bread crumbs while making the dough.
    • You can add your own choice of masala powders and spice powders – like a pinch of chaat masala, red chilli powder, garam masala powder to  make it more interesting.
    • Do not reduce cheese or potato as these two mainly binds the corn in these balls. Also mailda and corn flour helps in binding.
    • If you want you can give it a grind in mixer, but we love corn as such whole in our corn cheese balls.
    • I was afraid if the balls will dis integrate in oil, so rolled in corn flour for extra binding. I tried without that step as well in next batch and it turned the same, so you can very well skip that step.
    • I used store bought bread crumbs, but you can make your own by drying bread in the sun for an hour or two and grinding it. You can keep this refrigerated to future use too.
    • Fresh bread crumbs is not recommended, use dry bread crumbs.
    • After step 4, you can cling wrap the plate and keep refrigerated, fry when needed later in that day.
    • I used grated cheese that was with me already, you can use any cheese like mozzarella, cheddar.

Serve hot with tomato sauce or tomato chilli sauce.

  3. Nice recepie
    To make cheese balls what kind of cheese should I use is it okay if I use pizza cheese??
    Plz tell me the name of the cheese.

    1. Yes pozza cheese is okay. Cheddar also works fine. It depends on how you want the cheese balls. If you want a stringy effect, use pizza cheese. If you want more on gooey molten form, use cheddar.

  4. Can u please tell me if the recipe was made using mozzarella cheese or cheddar?

  5. It's mixed cheese, I got it as pasta cheese from shop, as I had it, I used it.

  8. Yummilicious! Just made it for the kids and it turned out just as good as it looks. A big hit with my picky eaters! Thanks!

  9. These were really tasty and I used old cheddar cheese...may add some Jalepeno's to kick it up if just serving for adults.
    Is there any alternative to preparing them rather than deep frying?

    1. Yes sure, you can add :) Baking might make the cheese ooze out. So may be you can try in paniyaram pan/ Appe pan

  14. Hi anything which can replace potatoes in these kind of recipes?

    1. fresh bread crumbs and a little bit of maida and corn flour (1 tsp) will help.

  15. Hi Raks, what kind of corn will be the best for this recipe ? Canned or frozen ? Fresh ones are not always available in the place I live.
