Potato Smileys!!!!

Potato Smiley

Who doesn’t love fun snacks like this??? My kids helped me make these smileys and they ate it too. They liked it. I used straws for eyes and butter knife for smile. I hope you try them and enjoy it like we did. I kind of merged two recipes I found on blogs and made these…


1. From Siri’s Blog

2. From Aarthi’s Blog

Thank you guys for this wonderful recipe. I am sharing the recipe here, but if you want to go to the source you are more than welcome too..

3 large potatoes
Cheese 3 tbsp grated
1/4 cup coriander leaves (or use any other finely chopped herbs/greens)
4 tbsp cornflour (or use all purpose flour)
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp (or more) red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
salt – to taste
oil, for frying
1. Wash potatoes, cube them with skin and boil for 2 whistles in pressure cooker (or) boil in water until fork tender. Once cool, peel.2. Mash potatoes in a bowl and add coriander leaves, cornflour, ginger garlic paste, turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala, salt and lemon juice. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. Refrigerate the dough for atleast 30 mins.

3. Make small lemon sized balls, flatten and shape into a circle. Using the straw, make two eyes and a smile with a blunt knife. Continue to do the same with rest of the dough.

4. Make sure you serve them hot. They are very crispy when they are hot. Once they cool down completely they become very soft. They spoil also very fast. Make sure you make them in limited quantities.
