These days more often than not I have seen people reach out for readymade frozen snacks when they need something like this. But believe me homemade cheese potato bites are so much better. You can customise them as per your taste preference, add vegetables of your choice or remove any if you don’t like it. For example, I am not much of a garlic eater so who I make these at home I make them without onion or garlic.
In this cheese potato bites recipe I added peas and corn, sometimes I add spinach, mushrooms, paneer etc which makes it quite versatile and flexible teatime snack recipe. You can serve it with an evening cocktail or party. I am sure this will be one of most fast moving party starter, in my home it always is.
