If you have a satay stall or have satay on your menu, you need to come up with some ideas that make your satay more interesting than the competition. One way is by making potato balls instead of the usual rice cakes that accompany satay. Here are tips for creating the best potato balls!
Make the perfect mashed potatoes
Steam the potatoes until they are fully cooked. Peel the skin and mash until completely smooth to get a soft texture. In order to save time, you can use Knorr Mashed Potato to get authentic flavour in just a few minutes. Made from real potatoes, simply mix with hot water to produce perfect mashed potatoes.
Prepare the spices and filling
To get the perfect flavour, sauté onion and garlic with a little oil. Add carrots, salt, sugar, flavouring and pepper, then stir well. Mix these fried ingredients into the pre-prepared mashed potatoes.
Fry the potato balls
Before frying, shape the mashed potato mixture into small balls. Dip these balls into an egg mixture and cover with roasted grated coconut. Then fry in hot oil until golden to make them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Presentation of potato balls
Your potato balls can be served alongside your satay, or even on the stick itself. Pierce several of them on a satay stick, or in combination with the meat. The combined savoury taste of the potato balls and the satay is hard to beat.
