These little patties are simple - just potatoes mixed with spices and dipped in egg and breadcrumbs before frying. They make a nice simple vegetarian meal with salad or finger food.

Herbie's Spices New South Wales, Australia

Makes: 25 mini patties

  • 3 medium-sized potatoes
  • 3 teaspoons Herbie's Spices Balmain and Rozelle Spice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • olive oil for frying

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:6min  ›  Ready in:21min 

  1. Peel and chop the potatoes and boil until tender.
  2. Drain and mash with the spice mix. You may add a little butter if you like, but no milk. Allow the mixture to cool.
  3. Beat the egg and milk together in a small bowl with a fork or whisk.
  4. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl.
  5. With clean hands, make the mashed potato into patties about 4cm in diameter and 1cm thick. Using a fork, bathe each cake in egg, lift out using the fork and drop into the breadcrumbs. Toss to coat, then place on a plate.
  6. When all the potato cakes are coated with egg and breadcrumbs, heat enough oil to make a depth of half a centimetre in the pan.
  7. When it is properly hot, carefully place the potato cakes into the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Turn when golden and crisp and do the other side.
  8. Drain on absorbent paper before serving.

Balmain and Rozelle Spice a mix of spices like lemon myrtle, turmeric, cumin, ginger, garlic, chilli, coriander seed and caraway.
