Mashed Potato Fritter

Yet again, in an attempt to be more regular with my blog, am beginning to publish recipes that have been waiting to be posted. Joining the group Chef at large in FB has really rekindled my enthusiasm to be an active blogger and that prompted me to post this very interesting, low oil, potato fritters that I made a couple of weeks back.

This fritter was inspired by a Beirut blog I follow. Many of the Lebanese and Beirut recipes are customisable to Indian taste and this potato fritter is one such inspired version from the following link mashed potato fritter. Off to the recipe...

Prep time: 30 mins                                                 Cook time: 10 mins

2-3 potatoes
1 small onion
1/2 cup green peas
2 green chillies
sprig of curry leaves
1/2tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garam masala or red chilli powder
dash of turmeric for colour
Salt to taste


- Peel the potatoes and boil them along with the green peas and set aside for cooling.

 - Meanwhile, dice the onions, chillies and get the other ingredients ready.
- Mash the potatoes and mix in the other ingredients along and make small balls of the same and keep aside.
- Heat a non stick panniyaram pan or a cast iron pan/skillet.
- Add little oil in each of the portions and once the skillet is hot, place one ball of potato in each and flatten with a spoon.
- Fry on both sides and remove on serving dish.

- Enjoy the fritters with any side of your choice:-)

Note: Variations to this can be done using eggs, cheese, paneer or other vegetables of your choice.
