Potato patties

This is a recipe on potatoe patties, which is perfect for outings such as picnic. Since these patties are baked in the oven, they are not as oily as samosas and are very soft, like bread.

25 g yeast
1 cup water
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tbs oil
1/2 tsp salt

2 large potatoes
2 medium onions
2 large green chili
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tbs curry powder
3 spring curry leaves
Salt to taste

Peel the potatoes and the cut them into halves (to allow them to boil faster) and boil them. Meanwhile, prepare the dough for the patties and let it rest covered for 30 minutes. Slice the onions and green chili as well as the boiled potatoes into small pieces. Heat 3 tbs of oil, add cumin, then the onion and chili. Fry until golden brown. Then add the potatoes, spices and the curry leaves and mix well for about 10 minutes at medium heat. Put aside. Divide the dough into small equal balls and roll them out. Place the filling in the middle and fold it in the middle. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 C (400 F) degrees for about 15-20 minutes. Once out of the oven, let them cool on a wire rack.
