Healthy Indian Snack Recipe-Sweet Potato And Chickpea Patty

Hello people,

I am always trying to prepare healthy version of our Indian deep fried food dishes. So here comes a healthy version of cutlet or patty which we usually prepare  with potato as the main ingredient. As I wanted it to be a healthy version, I replaced it with sweet potato and chickpea. It may take  some time for preparation but its all worth it. I made it as a quick snack for afternoon tea and I must admit I really enjoyed it.


Serves 8 cutlets


1 bowl (about 200g) of sweet potato(boiled, peeled and mashed)

3/4 bowl chickpea (boiled and mashed)

1/2 cup coriander leaves / cilantro(chopped)

7-8 mint leaves

7-8 garlic, one inch ginger piece

3-4 green chillies

1 tsp red chilly powder

2-3 tsp lime juice

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp cumin powder

salt to taste

2-3 tbsp oil

4 tbsp bread crumbs(bread powder)

3 tbsp flour


Grind green chillies, ginger, garlic, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt.

In small pan, heat 1 tsp oil and put above green chilly mixture and saute for a minute. Allow to cool down.

Now add mashed sweet potatoes, mashed chickpea (coarsely mashed) to green chilly mixture. Add red chilli powder, lime juice, mint leaves, coriander leaves and mix properly.
