Recipe Notes

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.

I am sending this entry for Vanamala's kids food event.
