A mouthwatering Indian appetizer. Mildly spicy, serve hot with sweet and sour sauces, like tamarind sauce (found in the Ethnic section of most grocery stores) and ketchup.

  1. Place unpeeled potatoes in a large saucepan, fill with water, and place over high heat. Bring to a boil; cook until potatoes are soft and tender. Drain, cool, and peel potatoes.
  2. Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add salt, garam masala, coriander powder, pepper, and cilantro. Mash with a large fork or potato masher until there are no lumps. Shape potatoes into flat cutlets, about 2 or 3 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick. Coat each cutlet lightly in bread crumbs, and set aside.
  3. Heat about 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry potato cutlets in batches until golden brown on both sides. Between batches, add oil as needed.

I will admit that I didn't fry these. I used all the same ingredients (subbed dried cilantro), but instead diced the potatoes and shook them and the spices up in a bag with oil. Then, I baked them for an hour at 350. These were good, but too much black pepper so I ended up not eating much of them. I would try these the fried way, or bake them again, but I'd lessen the spices some. They were better with ketchup.

Based on the previous review, I used only half of the black pepper and these were very good. We dipped them in Curry Ketchup which was fantastic(found in European grocery).


These were good. I ended up doubling the number of potatos to balance the overwhelming flavors, but the spices were still very intense. I would have preferred a milder flavor. I served them with a sweet and sour sauce, which balanced a little of the flavor, but ended up liking them better the next day when I ate them with ketchup!
