Spiced Potato Patties

I tasted these delicious Spiced potato patties from a little Deli and they are delicious. It was hardwork not to just devour it as I was eating it but I carefully tried to recognise the flavours! It’s not exactly the same but I will work on it.
You will need…
5 medium potatoes
1 small white onion
3 green chillies finely chopped
1 teaspoon of Garam masala
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Handful of chopped fresh coriander
Good pinch of salt

Batter
Chick pea flour
Water

What I did was ….
Boil 5 medium potatoes and cool then crush them roughly.
Fry the finely diced onion until soft add chilli and cook until soft.
Add the cumin and cook for a little longer.
Then add the Garam masala and Cayenne pepper, stir and then add the crushed potato.
On a gentle heat warm the potato through and mix together.

Season with salt to taste and add the chopped Coriander.
Mould the mixture into round shapes and coat with some chickpea flour.

Mix chick pea flour and water to make a batch of batter.
Coat each of the patties in batter and gently fry in sunflower oil in a griddle pan. It took about 5 mins each side.

These can be eaten hot or cold and are delicious! Vegan too which makes them taste all the better.
