Potato Cake

Summer is taking its toll. Chennai is becoming so hot that I am not able to bring myself to cook...and of course blogging has taken one step backwards.I haven't been blogging for some time now....Blame it on the heat..well..Is it the only reason???.Whatever be the reason I needed one compelling reason to get back to the blog world and that happens to be the post for GOURMET SEVEN. For the month of may The chosen theme is ENGLISH BREAKFAST. After mulling over many recipes...not able to decide..I did not know what to cook. The help came from the gourmet ofcourse. Radhika directed me to this page and I finally decided to cook the Potato Cake. But the Desi in me just wouldn't accept this recipe as it is. I decided to make it a little spicy and the search led me here.This tweaked recipe did suit my taste and we loved it:-)

All purpose flour    3 tbsp
Green chillies        3-4
