Potato Smiley....!!..A Fun Food For Kids..!!

The Best way to feed your kids is to attract them to the foods you made . They are too young to understand the health benefits or goodness of food. They only enjoy those foods which are tasty and look attractive. I know, all the moms have a specific list of foods which they don't want to give their kids and very interestingly those are the kid's most favourite foods. I generally try to restrict my daughter from the frozen foods, specially the French fries, smileys  etc. etc. But, she loves them simply. So, I have found out an alternative way so that she can enjoy it.

Making French fries and potato smileys at home is not a big deal. The process is very simple and I can assure you that your little one will love it.

Here is the process of making Potato Smileys at home:


  • Potato: 2 (boiled and smashed)
  • Salt: To taste
  • Black Pepper Powder: 1/4 tsp.
  • Freshly Prepared Breadcrumbs: 2tbsp
  • Cheese (any, preferably processed cheese): 1/2 cup(grated)
  • Corn Flour: 2-3 tbsp.( to bind the potato tightly, you may need more)
  • White oil: Enough to fry




  • Boil, peel and mash potatoes very well.
  • Add salt, grated cheese, bread crumbs and a little bit of corn flour for binding.
  • Mix thoroughly. There should be no lumps and make patties of your desirable size.
  • Use a cookie cutter to give them different shapes.
  • With a knife or other sharp instrument make smiley faces on them.
  • Keep them in fridge for sometimes.
  • After 30 minutes to one hour take them out and sprinkle little corn flour on them, it will make them crispy.
  • Directly deep fry them in hot oil.
  • Serve with tomato ketchup or with your favourite dip.
