  • Sweet Corn/ American Corn (Fresh or frozen) - 1 cup, boiled
  • Mozzarella Cheese (grated) -1/2 cup to 3/4 cup (Cheddar cheese or processed cheese can also be used)
  • Potato (boiled) - 2 nos  medium
  • Red chilly flakes or red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Pepper powder - 3/4 tsp
  • Oregano - 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic powder - 1/2 tsp (Pizza seasoning powder can also be used)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
 To Coat the Balls
  •  Bread crumbs - 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup (as required)
 To Make Batter
  • All purpose flour - 3 tbsp
  • Water - 1/4 cup
  • Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt to taste 

  • Boil corn and potato. Let it cool down completely
  • Grind the boiled corn to a coarse mixture.
  • Mash the boiled potato and add it to the coarsely corn mixture.
  • Then add in grated cheese, red chilly flakes, pepper powder, oregano, garlic powder and salt.
  • Mix all the ingredients well and form a kind of dough. Do not add water while mixing the ingredients.
  • Pinch small portion of dough and make small balls of it.
  • Place all the balls on to the plate and keep them into the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.
  • Until the balls are set in refrigerator, let’s make the batter for frying.
  • Into a deep bottomed bowl, add in all-purpose flour, pepper powder and salt. Mix everything well.
  • Make a semi thick paste using water. Remember batter should not be too thick or too thin.
  • This semi thick batter will help the breadcrumbs to coat evenly on the balls. After 20 minutes, check on the balls which were placed in the refrigerator. They must have set till now.
  • This step is very important to get perfect texture for the balls.
  • Spread bread crumbs into a wide plate.
  • Dip each ball into the batter and roll in the breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs should evenly stick on to the balls.
  • Repeat this step (dipping into the batter and rolling in the breadcrumbs) twice, so that there is a thick rust on the balls after frying.
  • Repeat the same process for rest of the balls.
  • Heat oil into the frying wok on the medium flame. 
  • Fry all the coated balls into the hot oil till they are crispy and get a nice golden brown color on all the sides.
  • Be careful during frying. Do not repeatedly turn the balls while frying, the balls might break and cheese can come out.
  • Once fried, take out the balls on the tissue paper to remove any excess oil.
  • And now Corn Cheese Balls are ready to serve with tomato ketchup or mayo.
