Title: Potato Chops (Alu Ki Tikiya)
Categories: Indian, Appetizers, Nibbles, Side dish, Potatoes
Yield: 12 "chops"
1 1/2 lb Potatoes, boiled & mashed
1/2 ts Salt
1 ts Garam masala -OR-
1/2 ts Ground cumin -AND-
1/2 ts Ground coriander
1 tb Chopped fresh coriander
-- (US = cilantro)
1 sm Onion, very finely chopped
2 Green chillies, finely
1/2 ts Grated fresh ginger root
Oil spray for cooking
CONVERSIONS: 1 lb = 16 oz = 450 g
ABBREVIATIONS: ts = teaspoon
tb = tablespoon
sm = small
Mix all ingredients (except oil spray) together well. Divide
into portions (as many as specified in "yield") and shape each
into a thick flat round.
Heat a large frying pan (skillet). Spray with a little oil or
grease lightly. Cook 3-4 potato cakes at a time, depending on
how large the pan is.
Do for about 5 minutes on each side until golden - DO NOT
disturb them until the 5 minutes is up or you will spoil the
crust. When they have been cooking 5 minutes try and lift them
gently with a spatula. Lift rather than scrape, and flip over,
remembering that they will still be very soft in the middle. If
you like, use another spatula placed over the top of the chop to
keep it together whilst turning over.
Keep them warm in the oven at a moderate heat (375 F, 190 C,
Gas 5) while you cook the others.

I can't remember with a 70s hairstyle. He is the same one who
makes khoya out of powdered milk.
