Easy, quick and delicious . . . Yes these are vegetable patties that were prepared in a hurry.

They are quick to make so let us get to the recipe quickly.
With the given ingredients I could make 5 decent sized patties.
- Potato – 1 medium sized
- Carrot – 1 small sized
- Peas – half cup
- Onion – 1 medium size
- Jeera – half tsp
- Haldi – one fourth tsp
- Chilli powder – as per taste
- Salt – as per taste
- Juice of one small lemon
- Garam masala powder – one fourth tsp
- Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp chopped
- Oil – 2 tbsp + 2 for shallow frying
- Rawa (semolina) for coating
Chop the potato, carrots and onion.
Heat oil in a kadai (wok).
Add jeera and turmeric.
When jeera is cackling add the onion. Cook till onion turns translucent.
Add the chopped potato, carrot and the peas.
Add the chilli powder, garam masala powder and salt.
Add a cup of water, stir the vegetables once and cover the kadai.
Allow the vegetables to cook.
When mashed return the kadai to the fire and let the vegetables cook a little more.
Stir frequently to avoid burning.
When the vegetables are mixed and come together in a ball turn off the heat.
Add the lemon juice and the coriander and mix well.
Allow to cool.
Take the rawa in a plate. Make small balls of the mashed vegetables and drop in the rawa. Roll it around to coat completely.
When well coated press between your hands to shape like a patty.
Heat oil in pan and shallow fry the patties in batches.
Serve with sauce, chutney or stuffed between a burger bun with cheese!
Enjoy it as you like it.
