Bun Kebab

Course Snack
Servings 6


  • 5 small potatoes
  • salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon red chili powder
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro roughly chopped
  • 1 green chili roughly chopped
  • ½ small red onion roughly chopped
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ¼ cup canola/vegetable oil (add more as needed)


  • Boil potatoes till soft. Briefly run the potatoes under cold water and peel them. Set aside.
  • Toss chopped cilantro, green chili and red onion into a food processor and pulse till finely chopped.
  • Mash potatoes to an even consistency. If they are getting clumpy, add some olive oil.
  • Add salt, red chili powder and chopped ingredients into the mashed potato mixture. Stir till well-mixed.
  • Take fistfuls of the potato mixture and flatten them into patties.
  • Heat non-stick pan on medium heat. Add oil and when hot, brush the patties with the beaten egg and gently place on pan. Fry each patty roughly 2 minutes per side till golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, heat the burger bun on a skillet or in the oven. Spread Maggi sauce on each side and place the patty in between.


The fried potato patties are also great as a side with lentils and rice. After I brush the patty lightly with egg, I place it on bread crumbs on each side before adding it to the pan to fry.
