Unique presentation and fabulous flavour make the Potato Pops a great hit with people of all age groups, whether you serve it as a starter, as a cocktail accompaniment or as an after-school snack!
‘Pops’ or tiny tikkis are made with mashed, spiced potatoes and stuffed with cheese, before attaching a breadstick ‘handle’ to each pop! This lovely tidbit is then cooked on a tava till it is crisp on all sides. The outcome is a five-starrer, which attracts everyone with its dainty appearance and peppy flavour.
- Combine all the ingredients, except the bread sticks and the cheese cubes in a deep bowl and mix well using your hands.
- Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions.
- Take a portion of the mixture and flatten it slightly between your palms.
- Place a cheese cube in the centre and bring all the sides together in the centre, seal it properly and again flatten it lightly.
- Insert a bread stick from one side towards the centre and again seal it properly as seen in the below image.
- Repeat steps 3 to 5 to make 7 more potato pops.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), grease it with oil and place 4 potato pops over it. Cook it with oil till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Repeat step 7 to cook the remaining 4 potato pops in one more batch.
- Serve immediately.
