Step 1 :
Boil the potatoes. Meanwhile the potatoes get cooked, let’s start with the preparation of the stuffing.

Take a pan and add around 2 tablespoons of oil. Then add half finely chopped medium onion. Stir fry the onion over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Then add 1 small finely chopped red chili and 4 cloves of finely chopped garlic. Switch the heat to low and cook for 2 minutes.

Step 3 :
Time to prep the boiled potatoes
Mash the potatoes using a masher or a fork. Then add half teaspoon of salt or salt as per taste, half teaspoon of black pepper powder, 5 tablespoons of rice flour and 3 tablespoons of cornstarch. Mix everything till they are well combined.
Step 4 :
It’s time to make the potato cakes.
Apply some oil to your palms. Take around 3 tablespoons of mashed potatoes, and shape it like a disc. Add 3-4 teaspoons of stuffing, push it down and then add some grated vegan cheese. Now wrap the potatoes around the stuffing and if the stuffing is not getting closed then add some additional potatoes, and make a ball and then flatten it like a patty shape.
Repeat the same, I was able to prepare 5 patties out of the mixture and still had some leftover stuffing.
Step 5 :
Let’s cook the stuffed potato cakes
Heat a pan and add 1 teaspoon of oil. Brush the oil across the pan. Place the patties with some distance between each other. Cook them over medium heat for 5-7 minutes and then flip. You can cook them for a longer time over low heat if you want them to be more crispy. Switch off the heat and serve them hot
They are nice and crispy from the outside and so soft and delicious on the inside. They are a perfect lunch box recipe and can be meal-prepped too. You can make these patties and then freeze them for later use as well.
