Potato Cakes

Ingrediens for the potato cakes

Potato cakes garnished with tamato wedges and mint spring

This is a recipe that my wife handed over to me, she is a expert in cooking with various ingredients and also a great cook herself. This idea came to her with a lot of trail and error that has worked wonders at home that my daughter who is just about to be 2 years this september demands at the top of her voice that she be pampered with potato cakes.


Flour 1 Cup
Black pepper 1 Tbsp
Jeera (cumin) 1 Tsp
Mint leaves 1/2 CUP
Spinach 1/2 CUP
Potato 1 ea
Curry leaves 4ea
Coriender leaves 1/2 bunch
Salt 1/2 Tsp
Ghee (Clarfied butter) 1Cup


1. First boil the potato and remove the skin
2. Add flour, black pepper, Jeera.
3. Cut the mint leaf, spinach, curry leaves, coriender leaf into tiny bits and add together with the salt and add to the mixture, and mix thoroughly.
4. In a nonstick pan add 2 tbsp of ghee and gently drop the mixture of potato which needs to be flattened into the form of a cake.
5. Cook for 3minutes on each side till it attains a even golden brown colour
6. Add ghee accordingly as you make new batches.

It is advisable to add vegetables like carrots, cabbage (chop) into the mixture, as the kids are going to enjoy it as there is mint, jeera and this is a great source of protein and carbohydrates.
