The family is ever so fond of potato and needless to say, I always try out a recipe where it is the main ingredient. Boiled, mashed, roasted, baked or even fried, anything made with potatoes is an utter delight. When my friend Mamta Kamath shared her version of potato Patties with me, I lost no time in making it.
8 medium sized potatoes pressure cooked, peeled and mashed
5 slices of bread
7 green chillies
7 cloves of garlic
2 inch piece of ginger
1 large onion finely chopped
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
Juice of half a lemon
3 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves
Oil to roast the Patties
Tip the mashed potatoes into a bowl. Grind the garlic, ginger and green chillies to a semi coarse paste. Tip it into the mashed potatoes. Dip the slices of bread into water, squeeze and crumble it. Add it to the mash. Add the turmeric powder, salt, lemon juice, finely chopped onions and coriander leaves. Mix thoroughly . Pinch balls of this mixture and shape into a Patties. Heat a tava/ skillet. Drizzle with oil. Spread it evenly all over the skillet. Place the Patties and drizzle some oil on top. Allow them to roast to a golden brown. . Flip. Roast the other side as well. Serve hot with tomato ketchup and mint chutney.
This proportion makes 12 Patties.
