Amongst all this hustle and bustle, I do have an interesting recipe to share with you. This recipe was born, on one gray and dull day, when we felt like having something hot and spicy and tasty, "may be fried" said my hubby. Well, frying is a rare phenomenon in my kitchen. Something healthy is more like it. So, after a little scratching of the head and itching of the brain, I went to the kitchen, saw what was available in the refrigerator and baked (instead of frying) these patties.
After having a first bite, he was all happy and so was I. But the patties vanished so quickly, that we would have been even happier if there had been twice as many ;-)
1 - avocado, peeled, seeded and mashed
1 - medium size par boiled potato, grated
1/3 cup - yellow pepper, finely chopped
half a medium size apple, peeled and grated
1 tbsp - ginger, grated
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp - coriander leaves, chopped
1 tbsp - red chilli, finely chopped (they were not that hot)
1/3 cup - instant oat flakes
a few drops of lemon juice
1/4 cup - bread crumbs (more or less) + a little to coat the patties
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
- Mix everything in a bowl and make round patties, coat them with some bread crumbs.
- Place them on a lined baking tray and bake them in a preheated oven for approx 30 minutes or until the top is slightly golden brown in colour.
- Serve with a mint-yogurt dip or any dip of your choice.
Together with a cuppa tea, these patties were perfect for a cold evening.
