A filling, low-calorie, vegetarian burger option. Delicious with spicy yogurt condiments.
2 lb russet potatoes
4 cups (full) finely-chopped spinach
0.25 cup cilantro
1 tsp garam masala
0.5 tsp cayenne pepper
0.5 tsp black pepper
about 1.5 tsp salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup panko bread crumbs
Quarter the potatoes and boil them until just cooked. Drain thoroughly and allow to cool (and dry) a bit. Mash with a fork.
Mince pepper and cilantro.
Add all other ingredients, except the panko and the oil. Mix well, squeezing the ingredients together. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Scoop out 0.5 cup portions of the mixture and form into 3-3.5-inch cakes. Coat with panko. Chill for an hour.
Heat oil over high heat, lower to medium when near smoking and cook patties until well-browned on both sides. Serve with salad and yogurt sauces.
