Potato smiley is a potato-based snack recipe, very popular among kids for its smiley face shape and crunch. It’s a very easy recipe with very few ingredients.

Potato smiley is made with boiled mashed potato, bread crumbs, and cornflour. Potato smiley is a deep-fried snack that can serve as party snacks and tea-time snacks. You can also bake the potato smiley instead of deep-frying.

To make perfect potato smiley, do not overcook the potatoes it will make the potato dough mushy and sticky. Also, use very fine bread crumbs. Here in this recipe, I have used homemade bread crumbs.
