Potato Cheese Meatless Bitterballen

I always buy potatoes in supermarket where it always comes in big bags
As a result, I always have leftover
This is one snack you should try if you feel like indulging in something savoury
This Dutch inspired snack is pretty addictive. This is a modified version by using potato. I made before using bread as one of the ingredient and it's real good. The original version only uses plain flour - I shall try also :)

What you need:
(recipe source: Sajian Sedap)
2 tbsp butter
50g plain flour
250ml fresh milk
300g potatoes - steamed, peeled and mashed (weight after mashed)
50g finely grated cheddar cheese
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder, a little sugar
For coating: egg white , breadcrumbs
  1. Heat butter and add in flour. Mix til lumpy
  2. Gradually add in milk, stir continuously til smooth. Remove from heat
  3. Add in potato salt, pepper, nutmeg, cheese
  4. Shape into balls - size according to preference, mine was about 3cm diameter
  5. Roll balls into breadcrumbs, dip into beaten egg, and roll again into breadcrumbs til well coated
  6. Deep fry in a wok with hot oil til evenly golden brown
  7. Drain and after about 10 minutes, transfer to a plate lined with kitchen towel
  8. Serve hot. Best eaten with bottled chilli sauce
