Potato cakes

Potato Cakes

This Potato cake recipe is extremely easy and quick and so delicious to eat on their on or in a bun with ketchup or if you like chili like me you can add a splash of Tabasco :)

Potatoes for mashing  (as needed)
grated cheese (as needed)
1 tea spoon 3G paste
pinch of cumin and coriander
1 red onion diced
pinch of red chili powder (optional)
pinch of onion salt (optional)
Olive oil for pan frying 
Flour for dusting

Preparation Method :
Heat a skillet on medium heat.
Prepare mash and let it cool until you can handle it without getting burnt.
Add all the ingredients together and mix well with your hands.
Form the the potato cakes into rounds and flatten slightly.
put some flour on a plate and dust each side of the potato cake with flour.
drizzle a little olive oil onto the skillet and place the potato cakes on it leaving a little space between them to make them easier to flip.
cook on both sides until golden brown and serve.

I made the first batch with a drizzle of olive oil to fry and the second batch was dry fried. I found the dry fried ones worked better for me.

You can use an egg in the mash to help with the binding if you wish. ( I chose not to)
Be very careful when flipping the potato cakes as if you flip them too soon the will fall apart. they slide around freely in the pan when they are ready to be turned.

I hope you enjoy this recipe :)
