Aloo Cutlet / Potato Patties

Who will not love a dish that's made with Aloo/Potato?? Here comes one of those interesting recipes. Aloo cutlet was one such snack which my mom used to prepare for us in my childhood days.. :) I need not actually say anything much about this dish as it's well known to everyone :) Let's begin with the recipe.. Here again, there are many many versions of preparing these patties.. I leave it to your choice about adding the vegetables accompanying the Potatoes.. if you are not willing to add up any other vegetable to this, go ahead with just Potatoes and Peas. These patties, as a change from the regular Aloo cutlet chat, can be sandwiched with the toasted Bread :)

3 Bread slices
3 large Boiled Potatoes
1/2 cup Boiled peas
3 Green chillies chopped
2 tbsp chopped Coriander leaves/Cilantro
2 tbsp corn flour
3 tsp Red chilli powder
2 tsp Coriander powder
Pinch of turmeric
1/2 tbsp Garam Masala
1/2 tbsp Chat Masala
Salt to taste
Oil for deep fry

1. Tear the bread slices into pieces and then bring them to mixi. You'll get fine bread powder. Keep it aside.
2. Take a wide bowl. Add the boiled potatoes and peas and mash them well. Add chillies, corn flour, all the dry spices, salt and the coriander leaves.
3. Mix well and add the bread powder. Mix well again and make small balls with the stuff and press it gently under your palms to get the patty shape. Heat oil for deep fry aside.
4. Once oil is hot enough, add the patties and fry until golden brown both the sides. Serve them hot with tomato sauce.

You can also bake them in the Oven at 450F. I have tried a batch in oven too some other time and it really came out well. I don't remember the exact time but it definitely took more than 10 min.. give a look after 10 min and decide the rest time.
