Stuffed Corn patties


3 large red potatoes, boiled and mashed

For stuffing
1 can sweet corn drain and wash
1 inch piece ginger
1 jalapeno pepper

Crush the corn in the food processor with ginger and jalapeno. Then cook in the microwave at 5 minute intervals for 15 minutes. Add salt, amchur, crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, and cumin seeds along with cilantro to this mixture. Keep aside.

Add bread crumbs to the mashed potatoes. A handy tip to remember is to add the bread crumbs when the potatoes are warm. This will help in binding better. Shape the potatoes into small balls and design into small hollow cups. Put the stuffing in the center, shape them into balls, roll into bread crumbs and flatten into patties. In a tawa or pan roast these on either side with a little oil until it is golden brown. Serve with Yoghurt and sweet chutney on the side.
