  1. Take potatoes, cheese, plain flour, custard powder, nutmeg powder, pepper powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Combine them to form smooth dough. No need to add water. Make 12 equal size balls out of it.
  2. Heat oil for deep frying. Roll the balls on bread crumbs. When the oil is moderately hot, drop them one by one, into the oil. At a time you can fry 5-6 such balls. Don't overcrowd them. Fry them for 3-4 minutes. For uniform cooking on all sides, turn them once in a while. When they turn biscuit color, remove them on an absorbent paper towel. Repeat the procedure for the entire dough.
  3. Enjoy eating potato and cheese croquettes when they are hot and juicy. You can try eating them with tomato sauce. They taste yummy even just like that.
