Ingredients :

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped beans
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 3 potatoes
  • Small piece of ginger (grated)
  • 1 finely chopped green chilly
  • 1/2 teaspoon jeera powder
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Few tablespoons of rice flour

Procedure :

For the stuffing :

  • Finely chop beans, carrot, onion (optional). Mix in peas.
  • Heat oil. Add veggies, salt and pepper. Cook till done.

For the cutlet :

  1. Boil potatoes. Cool and mash well. To this add ginger, green chillies, jeera powder and salt. Knead well into a smooth dough.
  2. Make equal sized patties of the potato dough and stuff in the vegetable mixture.
  3. Keep the cutlets in the fridge for about 2 hours or more so that the potato dries up.
  4. Once you take it out of the fridge keep aside for 30 minutes so it can reach room temperature.
  5. Heat oil well. Dust the patties in rice flour and deep fry.
  6. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or Spring onion chutney.

Please NOTE :

  1. When you take patties out of the fridge you need to let them reach room temperature before frying, else the temperature mis-match can cause them to split and scatter.
  2. Temperature control of oil is essential in this snack. Fry patties in hot oil. Dont fry more than 2-3 at a time else the oil will go cold.
  3. Once you take them out, allow the oil to heat up again before frying more patties.
