Chilli Garlicky Cheesy Rice - Potato Pops...
These can be served as tea time snacks or starters. These are vegetarian pops. I love the taste of the melted mozzarella. These are easy to make. Must serve it hot..
For the Stuffing
1/2 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
1 cup Mozarella grated
1/2 cup Cottage Cheese crumbles or grated
1 tsp to 2 tsp Green Chillies minced as required
1 tsp Garlic minced
Salt to taste
Mix all the above ingredients together and keep it aside.
For the Potato - Rice Pops
1 cup cooked Rice mashed
2 Large Potatoes boiled grated
1 cup or 3 to 4 end slice of the Fresh Bread crumbs
1/4 cup Spinach Puree
Salt to taste
1 tsp Oil
Mix all the above ingredients together well and make a dough. If you feel the dough is too sticky to handle then add some more bread crumbs. Add a tsp oil and knead it well.
To Fry the Pops
1 cup Fine Semolina
Oil to fry
Take a small portion of the dough, flatten it.Place some stuffing in between the dough. Press the stuffing in the center and close the edges of the dough. Roll it into a ball. Repeat the process till all the pops are ready. Toss them in semolina. Heat the oil in a fry pan. Fry the pops till golden brown on full flame. Remove it on an absorbent paper. Serve it hot with tomato ketchup...
P.S. Take Fresh Bread and grind it to make fresh bread crumbs.
The dough is a bit sticky, to handle the dough apply oil on the palms.
Please roll the pops well after the stuffing is done, or else it can break and the cheese can ooze out.
