Mango Masala Paties

Mango Masala Patties is a snack dish. You can have them in the evening and skip your dinner. It is stomach filling yummy dish.
Potato is favourite of almost every one. Preparing bajjis, bondas, vada pav or Aloo tikky are common now a days. Potato is normally the basic ingredient in most of the North Indian dishes. These dishes have become very very popular world wide.
I have prepared potato patties using bread and potatoes. I also have done a curry or ragda using tomatoes, spice and a little amount of boiled peas. For the tangy taste I used mango chutney. Mango Chutney mixes well with spice and adds taste to the curry.
Lets see the recipe.
