Mutter Patties (Green Peas Patties)
4 medium size potatoes, boiled and peeled,
2 tbsp maida (sieved flour) or as per requirement,
1 cup shelled green peas, boiled,
1 small onion, chopped,
1 tsp jeera,
1 tsp coriander powder,
1/4 tsp turmeric powder,
1/2 tsp red chilli powder,
1/2 tsp garam masala,
1 tbsp tomato puree,
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves,
Salt to taste,
Oil for frying.
Mash potatoes, add maida and salt and knead well. For filling, heat some oil in a pan and add jeera. When jeera splutters add chopped onion and saute for some time. Then add all the masalas, mix well and then add the boiled peas. Cook for some time. Remove from flame and add coriander leaves. Let it cool for some time.
Now make small balls and flatten with your fingers and palms to form a thick puri. Place a spoonful of filling in the centre and seal the puri from all sides to make a flat ball.
Now heat oil in a pan or a kadhai to shallow/deep fry the patties.
Serve with mint, coriander chutney or tomato sauce.
