I have been eating these patties or ‘kachche kele ke kebab’ as they were called since childhood. I always enjoyed their simple flavours. Now my children love them. These are really easy to make and if you have boiled potatoes and plantains at hand then you can have them ready in a jiffy.
Makes about 16 patties
Boiled potatoes: 4 medium
Boiled plantains (kachche kele): 3
Roasted peanuts: 1/2 cup toasted and lightly pounded
ginger-garlic paste 1 tsp. each
green chilly paste: 1 tsp.
1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. red chilly powder
salt to taste
Boil the bananas and plantains together. Peel and mash when cooled.
Add all the ingredients to the mash and make a mixture. You may add finely chopped coriander leavers or parsley to the mix for added flavor.
Now with your hands, make thin, round patties. Cook them on a non-stick tava or griddle with very little oil.
It just takes a couple of minutes on each side to get a lovely brown coating. Serve the patties hot as an evening snack along with ketchup or chutney. Goes really well with tea.
