It was my hubby’s birthday on last Friday and I wanted to make many starters for his birthday. My idea was to make 4-5 starters and no main course. He is very fond of patties and that is why you will find many recipes in my blog,- Til Tikkis, Mint Paneer Tikkis and Aloo badam patties are some of them. I find patties ideal for parties, tea time snacks and Sunday brunch. Love them :)
I made these patties with boiled mashed potatoes and sweet corn. They taste best when escorted with green spicy chutney. A little amount of green chilli brings the exact punch, corn adds in apt sweetens, lime juice balances the zing and mozzarella cheese oozes out spot on flavour and taste. So if you have ever imagined plain potato patties with some awesomeness included-Try Corn Cheese Patties :)
Boiled and mashed potatoes -1 cup
Boiled corn – 1/4 cup
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Green chilli chopped-2
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
Grated mozzarella cheese-1/8 cup
Green Coriander chopped- 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Bread crumbs to coat
Oil to sprinkle
In a bowl combine sweet corn, mashed potatoes, salt, lime juice, green chilli, chat masala, cheese and coriander. Mix well.
Divide the dough in 6 equal parts and flatten the tikkis a bit to shape like patties.
Coat the tikkis in the breadcrumbs and keep in fridge for half an hour.
Heat a pan and add oil. Cook on medium-low heat until golden both the sides.
Notes: Adding cheese is optional. In fact you can add any other cheese also if you can get mozzarella.
Freezing the tikkis helps in holding the shape but if in hurry omit this step.
If you feel the mixture is not tight, consider adding corn flour or bread crumbs.
I wanted to make healthier one so I toasted on pan with little oil, however it can be shallow fried.
Spicy and cheesy.
