Number of Servings: 4

450 Gram(s) Potatoes
2 Tablespoon(s) Sunflower or vegetable oil
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Cumin seeds
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Green chilli, seeded and
2 Teaspoon(s) Grated fresh ginger
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Ground Turmeric
2 Tablespoon(s) Finely chopped fresh
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt or to taste
Cornflour, as required
1 Egg
Oil for deep frying
Peel and cut the potatoes into small pieces and boil with plenty of
salted water until tender, but not mushy. Leave to drain and dry in a
colander, then mash lightly. In a small saucepan, heat the oil over a
medium heat and add the cumin seeds. As soon as they splutter, add the
onions, green chillies and ginger. Fry for 3-4 minutes until the
onions are soft. Stir in the turmeric, coriander leaves and salt,
remove from the heat and add the mashed potatoes, cornflour and egg.
Stir until all the ingredients are well blended. Heat the oil for
deep frying in a wok or other suitable pan over a medium to high heat.
Drop a tiny amount of the potato mixture into the oil to test the
temperature. If the potato mixture starts sizzling and floating to the
top immediately, then the oil is at the right temperature. Pick up 1
tablespoon of the potato mixture and, with another spoon, make a rough
croquette shape, then gently push it into the hot oil. Fry as many as
the pan will hold in a single layer without overcrowding the pan. Too
many of them together in the pan will lower the temperature of the pan
causing them to break up, so watch out. Fry until well browned (5-6
minutes) then drain on absorbent paper. DISCLAIMER© Copyright 1996 -
