Heat a paniyaram pan, add 1/2 tsp of oil in each hole. Place the balls in the holes and fry on very low heat, turning the balls from time to time for even frying.

Fry until it turns golden brown. Remove from paniyaram pan and drain on kitchen paper.

Repeat the same process for the rest of the balls.

Serve hot corn cheese balls with tomato ketchup.

Note - To make it  healthy, I have used paniyaram pan to fry the balls. You can deep fry the balls if preferred. Frying it in paniyaram pan needs lot of patience as it should be done on very low heat. 

You can use all purpose flour (maida) in place of cornflour.

  10. When I tried this it was not coating well with cornflour or breadcrumbs and hence it drank too much oil where it was uncovered.

    How did you make the ball so dry?

    1. There should be no moisture in the mixture. After boiling the potato, wipe it dry and then peel the skin and grate it.
