Mix well and bring it together to form a dough. Divide the mixture into equal parts and make smooth balls out of it. Then flatten the balls to form patties as shown in the picture below.

Heat oil (around 1-2 tsp per patties) in a tawa and fry the patties on low heat until golden brown on both sides.

Enjoy it hot with green chutney. It goes best with green chutney. As I was not in a mood to make green chutney, we had it with leftover onion tomato chutney.
