Easy Veg Patties

I looked around for a lot of recipes of veg kebabs/patties which did not use potatoes, but couldnt find anything to my statisfaction. So I started forming a recipe on my own and did not really plan on what ingredients or how I wanted to make it. The only restriction I had that was not to use more than one small potato due to the no carb diet that we are on currently. I used the veggies that I had with one potato to form the base and some rice flour as a binding agent, all cooked and sauteed with some spices and toasted on an iron griddle to make this veg kebab.

Two large patties served with some soup, made for a very filling dinner also leaving us feeling healthy at the same time. Its a quick one, so whenever you have a lot of veggies in small quantities, throw everything together to make this tawa veg pattie for an easy dinner, or stuff it up in between a 6 inch Italian bread with some sauces and salad veggies to have your sub of the day :)


Serves - Makes 4 large patties
Spice Level - Moderate
Prep Time - 15 min
Cook time - 20 min

Onion - 1 medium, chopped finely
Ginger Garlic [GG] paste - 1 Tsp
Mushroom - 4-5 pieces, cleaned and chopped finely
Potato - 1 medium, quartered and cooked and mashed well
Beans - 5-6, chopped finely
Beetroot - 1 , cut into medium pieces
Carrot - 1 Large , cut into thin roundels
Green chilli - 2 , cut finely
Masala/Curry powder - 1/2 Tsp
Coriander powder - 1 Tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 Tsp
Jeera - 1/2 Tsp
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1 Tbsp , chopped well
Salt - as per need
Oil - 1 Tsp + as per need , to toast the patties
Rice Flour - 2 Tbsp
Corn Flour - 1 Tsp

How do you do it

1. First toss the carrots, beets, beans into a pressure cooker and cook with 1 cup of water for 3-4 whistles. Once cooled, remove the lid, drain and reserve the excess water and mash the veggies completely. Once mashed, take handful of these mashed veggies and the squeeze the water from them as much as possible [reserve this water] and keep aside. Use the water you get from the veggies for any other dish prep of yours - sambar, rasam or soup etc. Do not throw it away , its a nutritious vegetable stock.

2. Microwave the potato for 5 minutes in 1 cup water, drain the water, and mash the potatoes and keep aside.

3. Heat 1 tsp oil in a kadai. Add hing and jeera, let them roast and give a nice aroma. Add in the chopped onions and saute till translucent. Add the green chillies and GG paste and saute for a minutes. Add the mushrooms now and saute them till they let out water and get cooked and change color to a darker shade.

4. Now add the other veggies and spice powders - turmeric, curry powder, coriander powder, salt and mix well. Saute until you get a dry mixture without moisture. Add the mashed potatoes and mix well, cook for 2 more minutes. Switch off flame.

5. Transfer the mix to a bowl, and let it cool down a bit. Add the chopped coriander leaves, rice flour and corn flour to the mixture and combine well. Check for salt and seasoning , and make the required changes to suit your taste.

6. Divide this mix into 4 to 5 round balls and flatten them to form a round pattie shape of medium thickness.

7. Smear little oil on top of a heated iron griddle/tawa. Place a pattie on the tawa to toast. Apply oil on the sides of the pattie and toast both sides in low-medium flame for about 5 minutes until they are cooked well and you get the dark crispy spots on the outer layer. Be gentle while flipping the patties, make sure not to break them.

Serve this pattie with some salad and soup.

I seldom drop responses, but i did some searching and wound up here
"Easy Veg Patties". And I do have a couple of questions
for you if you don't mind. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of the responses appear like they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I'd like to keep
up with anything new you have to post. Could you list of
the complete urls of all your communal sites like your Facebook page,
twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
Also visit my weblog Does Eating For Energy Works?
