Process: Roast the fennel, cumin, fenugreek and mustard seeds for 2 minutes on medium heat. Slightly crush them in a grinding mortar with the help of a pestle. Put them in a bowl with the other spices, cilantro and potatoes. Mash and mix everything well.
You can also add 1/2 tablespoon of oil but this is optional.
Start making circular shaped balls and Flatten them into round patties.
If you are using non-stick pan then grease it entirely surface with oil. Heat the pan for at least 3 minutes first before placing the patties. Place 5 patties at a time and reduce the heat between medium to low.
It will take 3-4 minutes for one side to turn brown, after that flip it to the other side and cook it the same way.
Oven: Preheat the oven on 400F. Grease the tray evenly with oil and put all the patties on the tray placing them 2 inch apart.
Reduce the heat to 375F and cook for 5-7 minutes, check if it has turned golden brown and then flip to the other side to repeat the same process.
Potato patties ready to serve.
Note: for cooking on pan , you can also keep the potatoes on low heat by covering the pan with a lid. It’s just another way of having a crispy texture.
