Vegetarian Potato Cakes with Cranberry Orange Chutney

Last few days of my trip remaining and I have mixed emotions about it. I am really sad leaving my friends and family behind, goodbyes are always so hard *sigh*. However I am also excited to get back to my kitchen. I really missed it all these days and can’t wait to start cooking and baking again. I think I needed this break because October and November were totally crazy for me so this was a good break and I didn’t cook anything for almost a month! So now I am all relaxed and recharged for the new year.

I have been eating so much here, everyone is always trying to feed you something and you can’t say no. Yes that’s how you roll in Delhi. I guess I should put “weight loss” as my no.1 new years resolution now! I have been eating so much of the Indian street food and well that’s obvious because that’s what I miss most in the US. If you are familiar with Indian street food then you would know that a lot of it has to do with potatoes. I love the crispy aloo tikki, the pav bhaji, samosa etc. etc. and all these things have one thing in common – yes potatoes! I think potatoes are one thing which are loved universally in this world and that’s why they are always present on your Holiday table as well.

These vegetarian potato cakes require minimal prep work. You just need to boil the potatoes and then add in everything together and form a dough. And then dip the cake in panko bread crumbs and cook them till they turn golden brown in color. I love using panko bread crumbs because it provides such a nice texture and crunch however you can use regular bread crumbs too. I absolutely love cranberry and orange together and this chutney was just meant to be put of top of these potato cakes!
