Nariyal ki Kachori

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

The filling

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
