Cheese Patties

I am back after a temporary ‘Zombie’ state. Days were quite hectic and I did not get a chance to cook and/or post something new. I had to finish ricotta cheese and I had already used them in couple of Italian dishes. I was craving for something spicy and thought to mix cheese with potato and flour and then deep fry them. These patties turned out very delicious and filling. Now I have one more option for appetizers.

Makes about 18-20 small patties
Preparation Time: 20 Minute
Cooking Time: 30 Minute

1 cup ricotta cheese
1 medium potato, boiled and mashed
4 tbsp gram flour **
2 tbsp corn flour **
1 tbsp chili-ginger paste
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp aamchur
1 tsp oil
Oil for frying

** Adjust quantity to make crispy patties

1. In a bowl mix ricotta cheese and mashed potato
2. Dry roast besan until it turns light golden brown
3. Add besan and corn flour to cheese mixture
4. Heat in skillet, add cumin, sesame and fennel seeds and pour them over cheese mixture
5. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix well
6. Divide mixture into small balls and pat them gently to give patty like shape
7. Deep fry patties on low flame until golden brown
8. Serve hot with tamarind and green chutney
