Baked: Spinach Potato balls

Spinach Potato balls

 

About:
Baked Spinach and Potato Balls can be enjoyed as a starter/appetizer or as an element of a main course dish. Spinach is especially high in vitamins and iron, particularly when combined with vitamin C sources, including potatoes, to improve absorption.

Quantity: 12
Baking time: 25-30minutes

Ingredients:
• Spinach-1cup (blanched and squeezed)
• Potato-250gms (2big/ 5-7baby potatos)
• Fresh bread crumbs- 1/2cup
• Finely chopped onion-1num
• Roasted and coarsely crushed peanuts-2tbsp
• Corn flour-2tsp
• Green chilli-2num
• Ginger-1tsp
• Garlic-2-3cloves
• Coriander-2 springs
• Oil-1tbsp +for coating

Procedure:
• Blanch the spinach and squeeze out the excess water -(water released from spinach helps in binding the dough but sometimes it makes the dough too soft)
• In a mixer jar blend blanched spinach, chilli, ginger, garlic, coriander and set aside
• Boil the potatoes – mash and set aside.
• In a large bowl add spinach-chilli, ginger garlic mixture, mashed potato, bread crumbs, add in chopped onion, corn flour, crushed peanuts ,salt, oil and mix well.
• Divide it into 12 equal parts and roll it into small balls.
• Grease a baking tray / sheet and place the balls on it. Sprinkle a little oil over the balls. Bake them at 200deg for 25-28minutes or till they turn golden in colour.

Note:
• Chilli is optional can use any spices of your choice..
• Chees can also be used in the mixtures
• I used fresh brown bread for bread crumbs
• You can deep fry the balls For heavenly treat
• Perfect for picnics and lunch box treat for kids
