  • 3 Medium baking potatoes (1 lb), peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp Butter or margarine
  • ½ cup 1 Medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp Finely chopped ginger root
  • 1 Serrano chile, seeded finely chopped
  • ½ cup Frozen sweet peas (from 12-oz bag), thawed
  • 2 tbsp Chopped cashews
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg white slightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil


  • ½ cup Loosely packed fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup Loosely packed fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 Serrano chile, seeded, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp Lime juice
  • ½ tsp Salt


  • In 2-quart saucepan, place potatoes and enough water just to cover. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer 20 minutes or just until tender. Drain. Mash potatoes slightly with potato masher, leaving potatoes slightly lumpy; set aside.
  • Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, gingerroot and 1 chile; cook and stir about 6 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in peas, cashews, garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook until thoroughly heated.
  • Stir onion mixture into potato mixture until well combined. Stir in egg white. Shape mixture into 4 patties, about 3/4 inch thick.
  • Wipe skillet clean with paper towels. In skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook patties in oil 10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on each side.
  • Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix relish ingredients.
  • Serve patties with relish.


  • Garam masala is an Indian spice blend that is available in many supermarkets. You can substitute equal amounts ground cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, coriander and cardamom.
  • These flavorful patties are hearty enough to stand alone without the need for buns. If you prefer them as a sandwich, burger buns would work well.
