Potato with cheese

If anyone is looking for healthy recipe for kids lunchbox/ break time, then you can give this recipe a try. Everyone of us tries some or other tricks at our kids to intake greens :p The main ingredients of this recipe is potato and cheese. This is the simplest form you can make, with very less ingredients or whatever is available in your kitchen but will  soon post with other green vegetables like spinach, peas and carrot.  Normally these are deep fried, but I have tried the way we make patty’s so less oil and more healthy 🙂 You can also use the Pan cake ball  / Paniyaram pan.


Boiled and mashed potatoes- 3

Semolina- 1 Tbsp

Salt & Pepper as per taste

Pinch of  Turmeric and Chili powder

Lemon Juice / Amchoor ( Mango Powder )

Cheese slices or Processed Cheese.

Oil to fry.


This is especially for kids, so its not very spicy. You can adjust it according to your preferences.


Add all the ingredients except Cheese and oil in mashed potatoes and mix it well and adjust the spices if necessary.  Break the cheese slices into small pieces and keep it aside.

Now take a small portion of  potato mixture and roll it into ball and flatten it in your palm, then add little pieces of cheese and close it by bringing the sides togther and once again roll it into a ball / flatten it like patty depending on which pan your gonna use.  Repeat the same with rest of the mixture.

Heat the pan and then place the patty/ Potato balls in the pan and then add little oil. Once its golden brown from one side flip it and allow the other side also to turn golden brown in color. Remove it from the pan and serve them with ketchup ,Amchur ki chutney , Imili chutney| tamarind chutney , Garlic dip .


Semolina(Sooji) Patty


1 Cup Sooji
1/2 Cup of water
1/2 cup of milk
Ginger 1 tbsp Grated
As per taste – Black pepper, salt, chat Masala.
2 chopped green chillies
4 tbsp ghee(melted butter)
1/2 cup grated cheese( you can also use small cubes depending on number of patty you are going to make)


In a pan add ghee. Once the ghee is hot add Sooji and roast it for about 5mints make sure the sooji doesn’t turn brown. Then add ginger, salt,pepper, cut masala and green chilli and stir it well for about another 5mints. Then add water and milk on low medium flame and keep stirring it until sooji gets tight and all the water disappears.

Take the pan off the flame and let it cool for 10 to 15mints. Once Sooji gets cooled make small patties of that by stuffing the cheese in the centre and then keep it in the freezer by wrapping it completely or by placing it in a airtight container for about 2 hours.
After 2 hours take it out and deep fry it in a pan and serve it hot by sprinkling little more chaat masala on the top with green chutney or Ketchup.


you can also store it in freezer overnight and use it next day when u need it.
