These little potato balls are ideal to whet your appetite as an appetizer, or simply to share with the family as an aperitif.



8 floury potatoes (medium)

2 tablespoons corn flour

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon parsley

oil for frying (peanut or sunflower)


  1. Prepare the Potatoes: Peel and cut the medium floury potatoes into chunks or cubes.
  2. Boil the Potatoes: Place the potato pieces in a pot of salted water. Boil the potatoes for about 25 minutes or until they are fully cooked. They should be tender when pierced with a fork.
  3. Drain and Season: Drain the cooked potatoes thoroughly. Transfer the drained potatoes to a mixing bowl. Add cornflour, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and parsley to the potatoes.
  4. Mash and Combine: Mash the potatoes until all the ingredients are well combined, and you have a smooth mixture. This is your seasoned potato mixture.
  5. Form Potato Balls: Take portions of the mashed potato mixture and roll them into small balls, making sure there are no cracks in them.
  6. Fry the Potato Balls: Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. You can use peanut or sunflower oil for frying. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the potato balls to the pan. Avoid overcrowding; fry 5 or 6 balls at a time. Fry the potato balls for 4-6 minutes or until they turn golden and crispy. Rotate them occasionally for even frying.
  7. Serve: Remove the fried potato balls from the oil and place them on paper towels to drain any excess oil. Serve the crispy potato balls hot with your favorite sauce for dipping. Enjoy!

Cooking potatoes : Feel free to overcook the potatoes a little, making them easier to mash.
