Cheesy Potato Pops

Some time back when i was browsing for something on google. I got this recipe of potato pops by tarla dalal. So Started to make them for my son. No wonder he loves that. By making this a bit spicy anyone can enjoy this. Lovely taste ... thought to share this recipe . This will be one my entries to my event Kid's Food Event and also sending this to The Potato Fe(a)st, hosted by DK's Culinary Bazaar 

Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 12 to 15 minutes Makes 8 pops.

  • 1 cup boiled and grated potatoes
  • ¼ cup grated carrots
  • 1 brown bread slice, soaked and squeezed
  • ½ tsp ginger-green chilli paste
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • A pinch sugar
  • 1 cheese cube
  • 2 tsp oil for cooking
  • Salt to taste


  1. Cut the cheese cube into 8 equal pieces and keep aside.
  2. Soak the bread slice in a bowl of water. Squeeze out the water and mash the bread.
  3. In a bowl place the mashed bread and add potatoes, carrots, green chilli paste, coriander, sugar, salt and mix well.
  4. Divide into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a flat round.
  5. Place a cheese cube in the centre of each round and shape into ovals.
  6. Pierce a candy stick into each oval and press the potato pops on the stick making an oval shape. Keep aside.
  7. Cook both sides on a lightly greased non-stick pan till golden brown.

Serve hot.
