Grate the potato and and arrange them on a metal sieve(shape of a cup)and deep fry them.
(You could even arrange potato julienne on a mould and deep fry them.)
If someone has better and easier idea to make the potato cups/basket, please do share with me. My potato basket did not come out that good, but it was ok as I could fill the corn in it neatly.

Assembling - Fill the potato nest with corn. Add grated cheese on the top. Sprinkle little chaat powder on them. Microwave for about 2 minutes till the cheese melts.
