potato patties
Potato & Kale Patties
Yields 11
  1. 2 large sweet potatoes or 4 small potatoes - roasted or boiled, then mashed
  2. 2 cups kale
  3. ½ cup coriander leaves
  4. 1 tsp garam masala
  5. 1½ cups chickpea flour (or plain flour)
  6. 1 tbsp grated ginger
  7. ½ to 1 tsp cayenne
  8. 1/2 tsp turmeric
  9. Salt to taste
  10. 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Chop the kale and coriander in a food processor along with some salt. Let it stand about 15 minutes, then squeeze out any excess water.
  2. Mix the kale and coriander with the mashed sweet potatoes, ginger, garam masala, turmeric, cayenne and salt as needed. Add the chickpea or plain flour, ¼ cup at a time, until the potato mixture is firm enough to form patties. It will still be pretty soft, but it’s ready when a ball formed by rolling the mixture between your palms remains firm.
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet.
  4. To form the patties, divide the mixture into 12 portions. Wet the palms of your hands with some water and shape each portion into a flat, round patty about 2 inches across.
  5. Drop each patty, right after you shape it, into the skillet. Cook each side until golden-brown, on medium heat. Do not crowd the pan. You might have to do this in batches.
  6. Remove the patties to a plate.
