Olu Manjivor - Quick Potato Cutlets

It is indeed one of the quickest recipes I have ever made. It took me five minutes to assemble the ingredients, and ten minutes to cook. All because I was hungry and needed a quick light bite.

As far as the taste is concerned, the ginger hits you the most. If you are making this recipe for kids, then go easy on the ginger. Instead of two tablespoons, you can add only 1 tsp of ginger. In case of kids, you can even add a bit of sugar. Fry well on both sides till it is crisp and it gives exciting textures. Crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Tastes best with tomato ketchup.

  • 3 medium potatoes washed, peeled and grated
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 2 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • salt to taste
  • oil for shallow frying
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl. Shape with hands to form round cutlets. It may seem watery at first, and as though the whole cutlet is going to fall apart. Don't worry it won't.

Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan. Place the cutlets in the frying pan and fry on both sides till the sides are brown and crispy.

Serve hot with tomato ketchup.

Happy Cooking!
