Potato Chop/Mince Potato Chops/Potato Chops Recipe

Potato Chop/Potato Chops  is tasty snack/appetizer made out of mince stuffed in  mashed potato covering which is then dipped in beaten egg   then rolled in breadcrumbs and  shallow fried.. Kids love it and so do Adults. We often make potato chops on Sundays and for some special occasion.It goes without saying that Potato chops has always been a family favourite and holds a special place in our hearts.I'm sure most of my catholic friends will agree to this
Potato chops are usually made as side dish or served as snacks/appetizer .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.
how to make potato chops

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.

  11. Hi how do you know the potatoes quality...because I tried it and was not able to make a dough...please help...what should I look for when buying potatoes

    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

    2. boil it in i meant not i tin....

  12. Hi what do you mean by rustic...and old skin means...it will be yellowish or dark brown..dusty...

  13. Hi Gloria I tried this last time it was superb...but the only problem I was facing is it was slightly sweet ...I did it add sugar though to the potatoes.....can you please tell me how to avoid that...want yo try it today again.....and waiting for the veg ones too....you said you will post it....

    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...

  14. Ya I did to add any sugar.....but still it was sweet....

    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

  15. Thank you so much
