Cheese corn balls!!

Last weekend my college friends came over for lunch. They gave me a list of preparations they wanted to eat, thus, I was saved from the job of deciding what to serve… 🙂 Yet, they left the starter and welcome drink for me to decide.

After a little mind boggling session, I decided to serve Cheese corn balls with honey chilli sauce. I thought the creamy mild taste of cheese balls will perfectly meddle with the sweet and spicy taste of the sauce. Luckily the combination turned out to be great and my friend’s loved it. 🙂

Here are the recipes i followed, feel free to try and do let me know how u liked it 🙂
