Peas Potato Cutlet (Aloo Mutter Patty)

Peas_Potato_Cutlet_Aloo_Mutter_Patty_1 My family likes the combo of potato and peas very much. Aloo mutter patty or tikka is a famous snack in north India and popular in other cities also. Potato is boiled, mashed, mixed with spices, rolled and fried or shallow fried. I prefer shallow frying to reduce oil intake. This yummy dish is a favorite dish of youngsters and this patties can be stuffed in burgers or in bread slices. Nice snack to serve in parties.

Peas is known as Mutter in Hindi and as Pattani in Tamil. Potato is known as Aloo in Hindi and as Urulai Kizhangu in Tamil.
