Potato Balls (Hot)

These are also known as Alu Balls. Alu is the Indian word for potato.
Recipe from "Caribbean Cuisine" By Dr. Betty "K" ISBN 0-919845-77-0

Ingredients

1 lb potatoes, medium size
1 small onion, chopped finely
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
½ tsp chili powder, optional
¼ cup flour
Oil for deep frying
Batter
½ cup dry ground yellow split peas
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Water

Preparation

  • Boil the potatoes in their skins. When the skins split, remove from heat and drain.
  • Peel off the skin carefully. Crush the pulp until the texture is like a smooth pastry dough.
  • Add the seasonings, mix thoroughly and shape into balls.
  • Combine all the dry batter ingredients. Add just enough water to make the batter a semi-soft consistency, like thick cream.
  • Roll each ball in dry flour,then dip into the prepared batter.
  • Heat the oil to 365°F (185°C). Deep fry the balls in the hot oil until golden brown.
  • Serve hot, as an appetizer or a snack. Makes 16 - 18 balls.
