Tried and tasted by Nivedita
If you really know me and follow my blog, you know that I am a person who finishes the work at the last minute. As the last date is nearing for any contest puts me into pressure and I do the cooking or posting.
Here is a recipe which I am re posting it for my dearest Jagruti. But Promising that next two days are only for her... for her ongoing event :I'm well stuffed.
Directly going to the recipe,( Aloo Pattice is the original post)
Potato -4 big
Haldi - 1/2 tsp
Kiraksali - 3 bunch(Washed, cleaned and finely chopped)
(In Harsha Bennur's blog (http://girmitt.wordpress.com/2008/07/25/roasted-kirkasaali-tandulsa/), he has given the name as Tandulsa for Kiraksali, I do not know which language it is.)
Green Pea(fresh or frozen) - 1/2 cup
Green chilly - 3 small chopped
Curry leaves - few chopped
Raisins - 8 to 10
Cashew nuts - 8 to 10 cut into pieces (optional)
Khus khus(poppy seeds) - 2 tbsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Dalda or Vanaspati - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Rice flour to dust the pattice
Oil to fry the pattice
Boil the potatoes. When cool, mash it. Add little salt (1 tsp) and haldi, mix it properly and keep it aside.
Heat oil and vanaspati in kadai, add curry leaves, peas (if frozen, keep it out of the fridge for 10 minutes before using it), green chilly. Saute it for a minute, now add raisins, cashew nuts and poppy seeds. After a minute add kiraksali. Add salt and haldi. Mix it and let it cook till the green leaves are cooked. Now add lime juice and mix it and keep it aside.
Next step is to make pattice and fry them in oil.
Make equal size(Big lemon size) of mashed potato. Take one, and press it on your palm to make it flat. Stuff it with ready leafy vegetable. Take care to cover full vegetable with potato. Otherwise all the masala will come out while frying. Do for all the potato balls. Dust the ready balls with rice flour.
Now, heat the oil in kadai. When hot, fry the pattice one by one till golden color.
4 to 6 pattice can be prepared with this quantity.
