Easy to make potato & cheese dish recipe For iftar.


Ingredients to make Steamed potato cheese balls for iftar:


  • 250 gms potatoes (I used 2 large)
  • 100 gms soft cottage cheese
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • ½ cup Fresh coriander and mint leaves, chopped
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp dry mango powder (amchoor)
  • 4 tsp chaat masala
  • 2 tsp roasted cumin powder (bhuna zeera)
  • Salt to taste
  • 3-4 Lettuce wraps/ leaves for steaming



  • Pressure cook potatoes with a little water for about 2 whistles in the pressure cooker. We want the potatoes only par-boiled as the potatoes will be further cooked while steaming. Once boiled; keep them aside to air dry. Peel and grate along with cottage cheese.
  • Mix together all ingredients in a mixing bowl and make small balls (approx. ~2inch diameter)
  • Line the steamer with lettuce leaves and place the balls on top of them.
  • Steam for 5 minutes
  • As soon as you take the balls out of steamer, they will look a little soggy. Let them sit for a minute before serving
  • Serve on lettuce leaves.
