Don't have a paniyaram pan, bet I could deep fry them.
Thank You.

Sounds like a great recipe! Seems like there is enough fat in the mix to allow you to roast them in the oven as well. You'd need some parchment on the bottom, but I think they'd hold their shape. What do you think?

EC said...

now i know what to ask for when I visit your place!

More than the actual dish, which looks very tasty, I find the paaniyaram pan a good thing for low fat frying... will look for that when I go to the market next

PS: An alteration you can try in this dish.. instead of mincing cottage cheese with rest of the batter, it can also be used as a stuffing (minced with finely chopped onions, capsicum and spices) for the main potato balls.

Riyaad Ali said...

Just tried the recipe at work by baking in my oven, and they came out really nicely! They are delicate though, so you could add an egg to bind.

Thanks again, and great recipe.
