Tasty,healthy,yummy Gol Gol Alu Patties with Salad

An Evening with IPL

IPL3 is really taking big toll on our health and time. The life goes around watching the match from 2.30 pm till mid night. It makes us to be a couch potato. Being from Chennai, I am a strong supporter of Chennai Super Kings and my husband not so emotionally attached to Chennai supports Rajasthan Royals since IPL1 and the reason being RR were underdogs then and won the trophy. Unfortunately RR not so successful so far in this season,  he is on and off out of his couch!!. One such outing from his couch to the kitchen brought out this excellent combination and was a treat to me. You may try his instant time pass attempt and enjoy watching IPL.

Gol Gol Alu Patties:

Potatoes - 3 medium sized
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a sprig finely choped
Coriander leaves- 2 tbsp finely chopped
Salt to taste

Boil potatoes and mash it well. In a pan, add little oil, then add mustard seeds. Once it begins to splutter, add curry leaves  and keep stirring in low flame . Then, add turmeric powder and chilly powder and then add the mashed potatoes, salt and mix well. Finally add the chopped coriander leaves and allow it to cool. Once cooled, make small balls and shallow fry them in the non-stick Appam pan/Kuzhi Paniyaram Pan.

He found frying in Appam pan very easy and consumes less oil too. Further when it is done, the outer layer was crunchy while inner was soft and spicy.


The Alu Patties along with awesome sprouts and  salad was a real treat while watching your team win in IPL.   I loved it. The combination of the salad and the gol gol alu patties is incredible.
"It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes - Douglas Adams" - Certainly not Rajasthan Royals' losing spree!!!!!!!
