Pressure cook potatoes until soft. Peel the skin and mash it well without lumps.
Boil water, add palak leaves and cook for 2 minutes. Drain the water completely, squeeze out the remaining water and grind the spinach leaves without water. Our palak paste is ready. (use only the leaves and remove all the thick stems and veins before cooking).
Blanch peas, drain the water, and grind it without adding water. Peas paste is also ready.
Add roasted gram flour (kadalai mavu or besan), salt needed, chilli powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, amchur powder and turmeric powder. (You can add little chaat masala powder if you prefer).
Add juice of half a lemon, bread crumbs and mix everything well. Check for seasoning and adjust according to your taste.
Divide the mixture into equal parts. Grease your fingers with oil and make a smooth balls out of the mixture. Flatten the balls to make patties/cutlets as shown in the picture below.
Heat a tawa, place the cutlets, drizzle a tsp of oil around the patties/cutlets and tawa fry the cutlets both sides on low heat until golden brown.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney or enjoy it with a cup of hot ginger tea or South Indian filter coffee.

I was so happy to see this recipe that I tried it immediately! This has been my fav starter at restaurants and this came out beautifully and tasted delicious. I also kept them in a preheated oven thereafter to keep it warm for later. Thank you padhu.
