  • Boil the potato with skin and then discard the skin. Grate it and then mash well. Grating before mashing helps to avoid lumps if any.
  • Combine this mashed potato with chili powder, salt, oregano, and cheese. Mix well.
  • Now add the cornflour and shape it into a dough. You can add more cornflour if the dough is more sticky (only if required). 
  • Keep it in the refrigerator for half an hour.
  • Now make small balls out of that dough and flatten each ball (must have minimum thickness). Keep it over a butter paper to avoid stickiness.
  • Using a straw or pop stick, make two eyes. With a spoon, make the smile. (As i do not have any straw, i used cake pop stick for making eyes)
  •  Heat oil and when hot, deep fry these smiles until golden and crispy on a medium flame.
  • Drain it to a tissue and serve hot with ketchup.
