  • 5 tbsp crushed peanuts
  • 20g coriander, chopped
  • 4 tbsp ginger, chopped
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 3 tsp cumin seeds, toasted and crushed
  • A pinch of salt, to taste

  1. Wash sago seeds and soak in water for 4 hrs.

  2. In a mixing bowl, grate the boiled potatoes and add in the crushed peanuts, coriander, ginger, green chilli, cumin seeds and salt. Gently squeeze the soaked sago seeds and add to the potatoes. Mix well and divide the mixture into 18 equal portions –approximately 30g each. Shape to make round flat patties and refrigerate for 45mins. Deep fry these in medium-hot oil until crisp and golden.
