Recipe for potato cutlets

Today I will tell you how I make an easy recipe for potato cutlets. I hope you will enjoy this quick recipe.
 
All you need for this recipe for potato cutlets;
  • Mashed potatoes ( 3 medium sizes)
  • Onion bulb ( small)
  • Coriander
  • 1 Egg medium size, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoons chopped green Chili ( or according to taste- optional)
  • Cumin seeds ( optional)
  • Coriander powder or seeds ( optional)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour or breadcrumbs
  • Salt ( according to taste)
  • Black pepper ( according to taste)
  • Vegetable oil, for pan-frying

These(in the picture on the right) are some optional ingredients that you can add. 
Directions:
 

The best thing that I like is, the main ingredient is potato little salt and pepper, rest whatever you want to add to enhance the taste is up to you.
 
 The way, that I normally use is;
 
You can use leftover potatoes or boil them until soft. Peel them and mash them in a large bowl, add salt and all other spices you want. Then combine them well with hands.
 
After mixing leave the mixture for an hour in the fridge and then divide the whole mixture into 6 equal parts. For each portion roll a compact ball and then flatten and make any shape that you like. Beat one egg and then dip the cutlet in this and afterward roll in all-purpose flour or breadcrumbs.

Now they are ready to fry. Normally I do not deep fry I just add few tablespoons (3-4) of vegetable oil on a platter or sauté pan over medium heat.
 
Fry the cutlet, in batches of 2 or 4, until golden brown and crispy. They are ready and you can serve them hot with ketchup or chili or hot sauce and tea. 
 
 
Note:
 
You can add boiled and drained chicken, vegetables like, peas, carrot, corn etc. to enhance the taste. You can prepare this mixture or cutlet and keep in the fridge in an airtight container and fry them when you need. You can use these in a sandwich too.  You can give any shape to potato cutlets, depending on your choice; round, oval, lollipop
