Cuisine: Indian
Type: Vegetables
Courses: Dressings, Starters and appetizers
Serves: 12 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs 681g / 24ozPotatoes - boiled and mashed
1/2 tablespoon 7.5mlSalt
1 tablespoon 15mlGaram masala -or-
1/2 tablespoon 7.5mlGround cumin -and-
1/2 tablespoon 7.5mlGround coriander
1 tablespoon 15mlChopped fresh coriander (us = cilantro)
1   Onion - very finely chopped (small)
2   Green chilees - finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon 7.5mlGrated fresh ginger root
  Oil spray for cooking

Recipe Instructions

Mix all ingredients (except oil spray) together well.  Divide into portions (as many as specified in "yield") and shape each into a thick flat round.

Heat a large frying pan (skillet). Spray with a little oil or grease lightly.  Cook 3-4 potato cakes at a time, depending on how large the pan is.  Do for about 5 minutes on each side until golden - DO NOT disturb them until the 5 minutes is up or you will spoil the crust.  When they have been cooking 5 minutes try and lift them gently with a spatula.

Lift rather than scrape, and flip over, remembering that they will still be very soft in the middle. If you like, use another spatula placed over the top of the chop to keep it together whilst turning over. Keep them warm in the oven at a moderate heat (375 F, 190 C, Gas 5) while you cook the others.
