Chilli Cottage Cheese Balls

cccb final 1

A super quick snack with minimum ingredients, this can be made anytime in a jiffy when hunger strikes. 

These cheesy balls can be made in the air-fryer also, which is a much healthier option than deep frying. I have included steps for cooking in both – air-fryer and deep frying. 


1. Cottage cheese – 1 cup, grated 

2. Cheese – 1/2 cup, grated

3. Coriander Leaves – 2 tbsp, finely chopped

4. Bread Slices – 2, sides chopped

5. Rice Powder – 1 tbsp

6. Chilli powder – 1 tsp

7. Chaat Masala Powder – 1 tsp 

8. Salt – 1 tsp or to taste 

9. Oil – 1 tbsp for air frying, 1 cup for deep frying



In a bowl, add the grated cottage cheese, cheese and coriander leaves.

Now, grease your palms and make small lemon size balls of the dough.

If you are cooking in the air fryer, then pre-heat the air fryer at 180 degrees for 5 mins. Now toss the prepared balls in 1 tbsp of oil and place on the air frying rack. Cook for 12 minutes. Take out the rack and toss the balls once in between.

7. If you are deep-frying, heat oil in a non-stick saucepan. Once the oil is hot, gently drop in the balls and fry form all sides until they turn brown.
