Spinach Ginger Patties

I was browsing for some new recipes for spinach, found this one from Supriya's blog Ode 2 Food. It was an interesting combo of spinach and ginger...gave it a try..tasted wonderful with burger buns... If u r watching calories..u can have patties alone, either way its tasty..She has served it with Tomato relish which i didnt prepare.. Check her space for the original recipe....

Ingredients
1 bag baby spinach, finely chopped
2 large potatoes (or 3-4 medium/small potatoes)1 large onion, finely chopped
2″ piece ginger, minced or grated
5 white bread slices, crust removed, torn to small pieces
2 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp salt
3-5 canola oil for shallow frying


Preparation:

Boil the potatoes until tender, peel and mash them in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the onions, ginger, coriander powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, lemon juice, cilantro and salt. Combine everything together well. Now add in the bread and chopped spinach and mash everything together with your hands. It might seem like too much spinach, but the minute it hits the warm potatoes it will wilt down to quarter its volume. Cover this mixture and let it rest for 20 minutes in the refrigerator while it tightens up.Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add about 4-5 tbsp of oil just enough to cover the base of the pan. Form 3-4 inch patties gently place in the heated oil. Shallow fry on both sides till brown (around 4 minutes per side).
The only change i did to the recipe was, instead of shallow fry I baked them for 20 mts at 400F. Turn once to get it evenly cooked.

Serve it with Fresh salad!!!
