Potato Balls Soup (Sup Berbola Kentang)

Hubby said to me "what took you so long to cook?? I'm hungry!!!" LoL!!!! It's not that I'm taking my own sweet time to cook dinner last night but there were so many steps to make this dish.... the fillings, potatoes, soup then frying the potatoes balls..

Although it took a little while more, its worth waiting. Simply delicious!!! I'm glad he waited for it as he had three servings of my potato balls in soup... hehehe.. 

The recipe is from Ms Adidah Anang that I copied from Suria website. However, I made some changes to it. 

A) 900g potatoes, peeled, cubed, boiled and mashed
    300g breadcrumbs
    2 eggs, beaten
    salt to taste

B) 300g ground beef
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 onion, cubed
    half of green pepper, cubed
    30g meat curry powder (BABA's)
    300g carrots, cubed
    300g corns
    300g peas
    salt and black pepper to taste

C) 1 tbsp sweet soy sauce, (Habhal's Sweet Soya Bean Sauce)
    1 tbsp tomato sauce
    1 onions, sliced thinly
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2cm ginger, minced
    spices (1 cinnamon stick, 2 green cardamon, 2 star anise, 3 whole cloves) (optional)
    5-6 cups water
    4 cubes beef or chicken stock (small)
    salt and black pepper to taste

cucumbers (sliced thinly or shredded)
chopped spring onions
chopped coriander
fried spring onion
spicy soy sauce

Heat large frying pan with some oil. Saute garlic, onion and green pepper until fragrant. Add ground beef and carrots. Add the meat curry powder and stir well. Last add the peas and corns. Season with salt and black pepper and mix well. Leave it aside to cool.

In a soup pot, saute the onion, garlic, ginger and spices in the oil until the onion is translucent, 5-10 minutes. Add water, sweet soy sauce, tomato sauce, black pepper and cubes beef stock. Add salt to taste if necessary. Cook in medium-low heat until boiling.

For the potato balls... Mix all the ingredients together. First, I took some mashed potatoes and flatten on my palm. Scooped some of the filling and put in the middle, then covered with another mashed potato. Shape into balls. Dipped in the beaten egg and fry in hot oil. Drained. 

Place fried potato balls in soup bowls and cover with boiling soup. Garnish with cucumber, spring onions, coriander and fried onions and spicy soy sauce. YUM-YUM!!!
