Found this recipe on Mayeeka. And like she has described it is a potato cutlet with a fresh coconut filling. I was a little too lazy to make a green chutney that was recommended, that would have been a wonderful accompaniment. And I also need a little more practice to make them into perfect and uniform kachoris. But they still tasted good nevertheless!
Ingredients – ( Makes about 6-7 medium sized kachoris)
Potato - 3 large
Salt – to taste
Cumin (jeera) – ½ tsp
Corn flour – 2 tbsp
Fresh coconut – grated – 4 tbsp
Green chilies – finely chopped – 2-3 nos ( acc to taste)
Ginger – finely chopped – ¼ “
Peanuts – roasted – and coarsely powdered – 2 tbsp
Corriander leaves – chopped
Lemon juice – 1 tsp
Sugar – ½ tsp
Oil for deep frying
Mash the boiled potato. Add the jeera, salt, cornflour. Mix and make a smooth paste.
Take all the ingredients that make the filling. Mix well. And yes, there is no salt to be added to the filling.
Grease your palm. Take a ball of the potato mash. Flatten like a puri
Put a reasonable amount of filling in the centre.
Fold the mashed potato mixture over the filling carefully.
Flatten like a cutlet.
Fry in oil – medium heat – till evenly brown.
Serve with sauce or spicy mint chutney
