6 patties


  • Oil for frying
  • 3 potatoes, boiled and grated
  • 5 to 6 cashews, chopped into small pieces
  • 5 to 6 raisins
  • 1 tbsp peanuts, coarsely ground
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 2 chopped green chillies
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp sendha namak (rock salt), divided
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 to 2 tbsp chopped hara dhania (cilantro)


  1. Make the potato filling: Combine the coconut, cashews, raisins, peanuts, sugar, ginger paste, green chillies, cilantro and 1/2 tsp salt. Squeeze the lemon juice over this and mix well. Set aside.
  2. To the boiled and grated potato add 1/2 tsp salt and arrowroot Mix to form a smooth dough.
  3. Divide the potato dough into 5 or 6 equal parts. Take a little dough, roll it into a ball, make a well in the centre, and fill a decent amount of the filling into it. Now seal the pit and roll it into a smooth round patty. Prepare all patties in this way.
  4. Deep-fry the patties in batches until crisp and golden.
  5. Serve with imli chutney and mint chutney.
