Aarsi’s Ultimate Potato Patties

READY IN: 3hrs
YIELD: 18 patties




  • Pre-heat the oven at 375 degree.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add turmeric powder, green chilies and onions along with the salt. Sauté until the onions are translucent. Do not brown them.
  • Add the potatoes along with coriander powder, red chili powder and the garam masala.
  • With regular stirring, cook the potatoes until the mixture starts coming together.
  • Now, add the lemon juice and coriander leaves. Stir to combine.
  • Remove from heat and let the mixture completely cool.
  • In a bowl, lightly beat the egg along with 1 Tbsp of water and keep aside.
  • Line a baking tray with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Coat this with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Unfold the thawed pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.
  • If there are ridges in the pastry sheet, gently flatten them with a rolling pin.
  • Cut the sheet into either four 5-inch-by-5-inch or six 4-inch-by-4-inch squares.
  • Place about 2 Tbsp of potato mixture in the center of each square. I use an ice-cream scoop to make sure that al the patties have equal amount of filling.
  • Brush all the four sides with the egg and water solution.
  • Take the opposite sides of the square and fold to create a triangle. Seal the ends tight with your fingers. Then crimp them with a fork.
  • Place the filled patties on the baking tray.
  • Brush the tops and sides of these patties with the egg and water solution.
  • With a knife, create a small slit on top of each pastry. This will help the steam to escape during the baking.
  • Bake the patties on the medium rack of a pre-heated oven until they are golden brown in color and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and serve hot with tomato ketchup.
  • Enjoy these savory patties with your loved ones!
