There is not much trouble to prepare this puffs but the washing part was..."sigh"..:( By then i'll wish i have a helper..haha! Ok ok, here goes the recipe and method......

1 tbsp Chilli paste (optional)

200g Cooked potatoes (small cubes)

Do remember to place the cooked puffs on a absorbent oil paper to drain away the extra oil.
Its really yummy, and i can easily took 2 right after frying. haha! to drink lots of water after eating all these oily frying food, ha!

Somehow, after trying, i find my fillings are not spicy enough. So if you like, do add more chilli paste to spice up. Try it out and let me know how is it..;)
