Chilli Garlicky Cheese Rice -Potato Pops

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
Ingredients
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 

Method
Mix all the above ingredients together and keep it aside. 

For the Potato - Rice Pops 
Ingredients 
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

Method
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 
Ingredients 
Stuffing
Dough
1 cup Fine Semolina 
Oil to fry 

Method
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.
