1tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 coriander powder
1 cup bread crumbs

1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp chili powder

1)For filling:
          In a pan heat oil add onions and fry untill translucent.
          Add turmeric, chili, coriander, garam masala powder and ginger-garlic paste. Fry for 2-3 min.
          Add fresh peas and fry than put lid and cook for 3-4 min.
          Add salt to taste. And let it cool for few min.
2) Mash the potatoes and mix in the bread crumbs, salt. Dont prepare the mixture too early as it tends to get get very soft and stick because of salt, you will unable to make ball. So prepare when you are ready to make pattice and fry.
