  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 cup Water

Potato Mix

  • 1 large cooked russet potato, peeled
  • ½ of a small finely, chopped onion
  • 1-2 Tablespoon finely, chopped cilantro (adds nice color)
  • 1 small finely, chopped jalapeno (optional)
  • 1-2 tsp milk (water or vegetable stock can be substituted)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper or adjust to taste
  • ½ teaspoon salt or adjust to taste

For Frying

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2-3 green chili peppers or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon whole cumin

Potato Mix & Batter Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, mix all batter ingredients together. Should be similar to pancake batter. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, using a potato masher or sturdy whisk, mash the potato until there are no large clumps.
  3. To the mashed potato, add the onion, cilantro, chopped jalapeno (optional), milk, cumin, cayenne, and salt. Stir together until combined.
  4. Form small patties with your hands. Start by making a smooth ball and flatten gently into a patty shape.
  5. Heat oil in a shallow frying pan.
  6. Once the oil is heated, dip one patty at a time in the batter. Gently place in the oil. Fry each side for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove and place onto a paper towel-lined plate.
  8. Serve immediately with green chutney.

Green Chutney Preparation

  1. Blend all ingredients for the chutney in a blender until smooth.
