Algerian Maakoud

These golden little rounds taste perfect hot or at room temperature and make an impeccable snack or side dish. I made a batch of these for a late night snack and it was just right. I tried making a batch beforehand by only forming a patty and coating in flour and it fell apart then I followed the directions and added them into the balls and then formed the patty coating again and they were perfect. So make sure to follow the directions exactly.

4 medium sized potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 small white onion, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg
Flour, for rolling patties
Sunflower Oil, for frying
scallions for garnish

1. In a large mixing bowl add, potatoes, onion, parsley, salt, cumin, garlic, pepper and eggs, mix well.

2. In a small bowl add flour (about 1 cup). Roll potato mixture into small balls the size of golf balls, then roll in flour, roll again into a ball, flatten then coat patty with flour.

3. On medium heat, add enough oil for frying. Carefully place patties into hot oil and allow cooking on each side until golden about 2 minutes. Place on a paper towel to drain oil.

Yields: Approximately 16
