Recipe by Sara 76

Posted for ZWT7. The recipe I found used yellow food dye, but I thought colouring it with a little turmeric would be more authentic.

I had some problems with this recipe. Only 2 of the potato balls came out nicely but the rest were a mess. The batter peeled off the potato and the potato became extremely oily. I'm sure it was my fault, but I don't know what I did wrong. The 2 that came out nice tasted good, but not amazing. They were a little plain for my taste. If I had to make them again I would add some parmesan cheese and parsley to the mashed potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes and egg until fully cooked.
  2. Heat the chicken stock.
  3. Add the Flour and stir until smooth. Using a whisk will help make it smooth faster.
  4. Add the turmeric and stir well.
  5. Once the egg is fully cooked, remove the shell and cut it into 4 pieces.
  6. Once the potatoes are cooked, remove the skins and mash. Slowly add the rest of the flour. The potatoes should be like a dough. You may not need the full 1/2 cup of flour, it depends on how big the potatoes are.
  7. Once the potatoes are dough like, pinch some off and flatten.
  8. Add one piece of egg in the middle and bring the potato around it to fully cover the egg.
  9. Shape it into a circle or oval.
  10. Heat a pan of oil on the stove.
  11. Dip each potato ball into the stock mixture and coat well.
  12. Drop it into hot oil and fry until crisp, about 1-2 minutes.
