  • The mashed potatoes have enough moisture, there's no need to add water.
  • Mix them all into a thick paste.
  • Then make the potato mixture into small patties just like vadas.
  • Heat a pan and place these patties on the pan, pour some oil around them.
  • Let them cook for a while, by pressing them with a spatula so as to cook them evenly.
  • When one side becomes golden brown, turn to the other side and cook again.
  • Repeat the same process with all the patties or pancakes.
