Shape the mixture into 2 cm diameter cakes with ½ cm thickness. Pat them well and rest in refrigerator for 20 minutes. 

Heat a non-stick pan or any flat pan and pour oil and pan-fry potato cakes on both sides giving a nice crisp brown surface. The pan shouldn’t be too hot or smoking hot.   The beat results are achieved on medium heat.

Serve with tomato chutney.

For the tomato chutney:

Heat one tablespoon vegetable oil in pan, sauté one teaspoon chopped ginger, three tablespoon chopped onions until translucent.

Add 250 gm chopped tomatoes, half a teaspoon red chilli powder and one teaspoon salt and two and a half teaspoon sugar. Cook the mixture till tomatoes are melted to form a sauce consistency. 

Blend the mixture with a mechanical blender and pass through a fine strainer. 

In a separate pan sauté half a teaspoon nigella seeds or cumin seeds in two teaspoon of vegetable oil and add to the sauce and mix well.
