Potato Chop/Mince Potato Chop

Potato chop is tasty preparation made out of mince stuffed in  mashed potato covering which is then dipped in egg beaten lightly  the rolled in breadcrumbs and  shallow fried. Its very popular in East Indian homes. Kids love it and so do Adults. We often make potato chops on Sundays and for some special occasion .

The stuffing can be altered according to your taste.There are some who don't add tomatoes .Some avoid the chillies and add the powdered masala or pepper.The stuffing can be made with any mince you prefer. We do make a veg one during Lent which taste equally good ..I will post the recipe for the same soon.

The quality of Potatoes used plays an important role.Sticky potatoes should be avoided as it will be difficult to stuff the mince an the chop won't fry well. The mashing of potatoes should be done well so that there are no lumps while kneading and stuffing. The mince mixture should not be very oily and should not contain more water ..it should be nice and dry.

You could coat the potato chops with rava/semolina if you run out of breadcrumbs. But try using breadcrumbs if you can. Do give it a try.

Ingredients:

3oo gms mince
7-8 medium sized potatoes
3-4 onions chopped finely
1  large tomato chopped finely
4-5 green chillies
1'' ginger chopped fine
6-7 garlic cloves chopped fine
1 tsp garam masala powder
3 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
2 tbsp oil + to shallow fry
3 tbsp ghee/dalda (optional )
salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
pinch of turmeric
bread crumbs to coat
1 egg lightly beaten.

Method:

                     Cut the onions,chillies,garlic.,ginger ,tomato fine
                                        Wash the mince well and drain all the excess water.
 In a vessel heat oil add the chopped onions fry well then add ginger garlic ,green chillies,tomato and the mince fry well add salt,garam masala powder a pinch of turmeric and very little water and cook add coriander leaves.

                                 Cook till the mince has been cooked well and become dry.


                  Boil the potatoes in a cooker or on stove top .prick a fork and see if cook well


                         Peel off the skin and mash it well  add salt and 1/2 tsp of sugar when it is still hot
                                                       Knead all well like a dough
 Now take a small part like a ball and flatten with your hands keeping the middle hollow to fill the mixture
                                             Take the mixture and stuff it in
                                              Cover all the sides and form into a Pattie
                                         Dip it i the egg and roll it in the breadcrumbs
Now its well coated and ready to fry.if you wish to fry it later you can refrigerate by placing it in airtight container or covering it with a cling wrap and fry later.
                                              Shallow fry in oil /ghee till golden brown and serve .

    1. hi.don't buy new potatoes buy the potatoes whose skin is old so it won't be sticky..the one which looks rustic works best ...also don't boil i tin the pressure cooker they tend to get very mushy or sticky at times...if you can't make a smooth ball add little cornflour and try dont add too much or the taste will change

    1. thanks for the feedback..if you find it sweet reduce the sugar to 1/4 tsp and increase the chilli in the mince mixture..or just dont add sugar to the potatoes just add salt ..ohh yes i completely forgot to post about the veg ones..will post soon...

    1. maybe the potatoes were sweet..next time when you boil and mash the potatoes , taste it if you feel its sweet add little pepper powder or simply increase the chillies in the mince mixture
