  • potatoes
  • Japanese bread crumbs

  • corn or any vegetable oil
  • Scrub the potatoes, make sure that it is absolutely clean.
  • Let the potatoes boil until cooked and soft. (Add a pinch of salt and a drop of corn or any vegetable oil in the water before you drop the potatoes.)
  • Mash the potatoes, as you would when making mashed potato.
  • Season it with salt and pepper, if you want it a little spicy, you can add some chili flakes or paprika.
  • Using your hands, roll a small amount into balls.
  • Dip in the beaten egg and then roll in the bread crumbs until fully coated.
  • Deep fry until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with a mayo-garlic dip or mustard-mayo dip.
