Fancy some Malay-styled mash? These delightful balls of potatoes are a great addition to your lunch menu. Bergedel has a nice golden outer layer and yummy fluffy mash on the inside.

Great balls of potatoes!

Serves 6 people

Make this for your kids' lunch. They will absolutely love it.

To shape the balls, spread some cooking oil onto your palms to prevent it from sticking on your hands.
