Potato Cheese Patties


Boil or Pressure cook the potatoes, set aside to cool
Mash the potatoes with the coriander chutney, all the ingredients except the cheese and the bread crumbs
Set aside
Powder the toasted bread into a crumbly mixture OR
use the bread crumbs available in the super market and spread on a plate
Divide the mashed potato mix into small lime sized balls
Make a dent in the centre, and place a tiny cube of cheese
Bring it together into a ball
Dab the flattened individual balls thoroughly on to the bread crumbs
The patties are ready to be shallow fried in batches of 5-7 based on the size of the pan
(My preference is to shallow fry as it is light and fluffy and not too greasy )

To shallow fry, heat a flat pan on medium flame and drizzle some oil around the pan and in the middle

Gently arrange the individual patties on the pan
When the bottom portion of the pattie turns golden brown, lift in gently an flip it
When both sides are golden brown, the patties are ready to be served!
Fry the remainder of the patties in batches as above!

Note:  Serve the hot patties with tamarind chutney or any sweet or hot chilli sauce!!
You may even make the patties smaller in size and serve bite size patties with a toothpick to grab it!!!
