Every week I post a sweet or savoury, healthy recipe.


This Healthy Recipe 

Vegan | Gluten-Free | Grain-Free | Sugar-free 

While traveling India, it was impossible to pass up the food - it was truly incredible. Usually, I abide by moderation but not this time! However, keeping up with the local diet of ghee, butter, oil, sugar and  is obviously not conducive to a fit life.

This is the first of my Fit Five India - recipes for Indian food without all (or less) of the naughtiness. A potato dish was the natural start as it's the one item I'd take with me to a desert island. Aproveita! (Enjoy!)

Makes 4 servings

  • 1/4 red onion peeled and finely chopped 
  • 2 handfuls unsalted peanuts, finely ground in processor



Grate carrot & cooked potato, add to a glass bowl. Add in cooked peas and chopped red onions. Mix everything together well with hands. Next, form mixture into small patties. You should get about 5 palm-size ones.

Gently roll patties in crushed peanuts (they will break apart easily otherwise!)

Pop patties into skillet on medium heat and cook until golden brown on both sides - about 3 to 5 minutes either side. (Oil is optional here as peanuts crust should protect them from burning.) Serve topped with sauces below and poppy seeds + sesame seeds.
