Corn Cheese Balls Recipe | Kids Snacks Recipes

I tried this corn cheese balls recipe without breadcrumbs after watching an Youtube video by chef Harpal singh. I found it easy and I prepared this for my daughter’s evening snacks. She loved it a lot. Usually cheese balls are made with white sauce and coated with bread crumbs or panko crumbs. But I followed this quick and easy method. I halved the recipe and added masala as per my need. For the last batch, I added little garam masala powder which is not in the original recipe. I loved it. It takes just 10 minutes to prepare when you have boiled sweet corn ready in hand. We all find difficult to remove the corn kernels. So  I have suggested a very simple and easy method which I saw here in road side shops. I’ve given step by step pics too. Some of you may know this already. Do try this method and let me know friends. Soon I will try to share Bangalore famous masala corn recipe :)

Check out my another version of corn cheese balls too.

Cuisine: Indian
Category: Snacks
Serves: 10
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 20 Minutes
Total time: 30 Minutes

1 cup - 200ml
  • Boiled Corn kernels – 1/2 cup ( GRIND COARSELY)
  • Grated Cheese – 3/4 cup ( i used mozzarella ,any cheese is ok )
  • Corn flour –1/2 tbsp
  • Maida – 1 tbsp
  • Chopped ginger bits – 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped green chillies – 1 tsp
  • Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Cooking soda – A pinch
  • Chopped coriander leaves – 1/2 Tbsp
  • Lemon juice – 1/2 – 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Water – 1-2 tbsp
  • Oil – for frying + for greasing ur hands
  • Bread crumbs - as needed ( optional, I dint use it)
  • Salt – As needed

  • Grate the cheese,boil the corn and remove the kernels.To remove the kernels, cut the boiled corn into two pieces. Take one piece and keep it on a plate.Hold the corn with one hand. Keep the knife on top of one side of the corn. Cut through the end. The kernels will fall down. Rotate the corn and do the next side. Repeat until all the kernels are removed.(click on the image to c a large picture)
    cheese balls step 1
  • Grind the kernels coarsely just by pulsing once or twice.
    balls step 2
  • In a bowl , take the ground kernels , cheese , flour and all the ingredients except oil and water. Mix & make a crumbly mixture. This itself forms a non sticky dough but u should add little water otherwise the mixture will separate when u deep fry. May be just 1-2 tbsp water is enough.
    balls step 3
  • Now add water to make a dough. It will be sticky. Grease your hands with oil and make small balls. Dip the balls in milk and then roll in bread crumbs(optional). I din't do this step. Cover the remaining balls while you deep fry. Do not let it dry.
  • Heat oil to deep fry and fry one for the first time. Oil should not be too hot. U should fry like gulab jamun by stirring the oil and the ball continuously for uniform frying. The ball will come up once done. Remove when golden brown
    balls step 4
Enjoy !

  • Adding water is very important otherwise the mixture will separate while deep frying..
  • I din’t use milk or bread crumbs to roll. But still it was crispy. If you want, you can roll the balls in milk and then in bread crumbs to get more crispy balls..
  • Do not deep fry in high heat because the balls will get browned and remains uncooked inside.
  • Keep stirring the oil using a ladle when you deep fry. This helps for uniform cooking & browning.
  • Adding garam masala powder is optional.

Enjoy this crispy corn cheese balls with ketchup !cheese balls- tooth pick
