Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes in their skins in lightly salted water until soft.
  2. Drain, peel the potatoes while warm, place in a bowl and mash.
  3. Add the feta cheese crumbled, the spring onions or the onion, dill, lemon juice and egg.
  4. Season with salt and pepper (not too much salt: the feta cheese is fairly salted already).
  5. Stir well.
  6. Cover the mixture and chill about 30 minutes.
  7. Divide the mixture in walnut-size balls, and flatten them slightly so they look like little thick cookies (it helps to have a bowl with water on the table to clean the hands after making several patties: they get very sticky!).
  8. Dredge with the flour.
  9. Heat some oil in a frying pan (like 3 tablespoons) and fry the patties until golden brown on each side.
  10. Keep adding little oil when needed.
  11. Drain on kitchen paper and serve warm.
