Golden Potato Patties for #Sunday Supper

This is my second participation in #Sunday Supper.  This week theme is Kids in the Kitchen to talk about bringing the whole family into the kitchen and have fun.  Initially, I was hesitant to join in as I don’t have children but this has made me thought of all my nieces and nephews in hometown, who are lives more than a thousand miles away from me now.  I promised them on the phone to make this for them on my next trip back to hometown and I know they will love it as potatoes are always the favorite for me and the kids. 

In Malaysia, these deep fried potato patties also call as “Begedil” usually eat alongside with curries.  Well, you can also treat it as a snack.  Its goes well with some chili or tomato sauce. For me, I will just like to wrap it with a piece of lettuce, yummy!  To make it more savory I have added in with minced meat and I have preferred pork instead of the regular beef for a change.  I used celery and spring onions leaves to add on with the fragrance.  I bet these golden-brown delicate patties will draw a lot of attentions and I hope you will like it too!  You may want to try to make it together with your kids too.  Have fun!

    1. Hahahaha...please don't, I can always make for you again Dear!

  14. Oh, that not only looks delicious, but it's so sweet that the theme for this is children :)

    We're kind of in the middle between your position and what was required: we do have kids (actually one), but she's only 5 months old and we couldn't possibly cook with her (or for her as she just started diversification). So I guess we'll have to wait a bit before cooking with kids too :)

    I love the idea of a fried pattie flavored with soy sauce. Sounds really nice.


    1. Hi Miriam & Bogdan, thank you for visiting this blog. Be patience, your baby could be the best helper in your kitchen soon. Glad you like the recipe, Simon and myself also like it very much.....give a try! Have a great weekend ahead!
