Potato and Beef Patty (Batata chaap)

Another Kenyan delicacy....

6 potatoes ( Yukon gold yellow fleshed potatoes are best)

Tip- I usually put a used lemon in the pot the potatoes are boiling to avoid discoloration of the pot or stainless steel pot works great!

Boil the potatoes till soft. Peel and mash.
In it add:
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
Mix the mashed potatoes with salt and chilli powder and divide in equal tennis ball portions.

While the potatoes are being boiled it's better to prepare the filling...

Minced Beef filling
1 lb lean beef , ground (Qima)
salt to taste
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 onions chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
1 cup chopped coriander leaves
3-4 green chillies chopped ( you can always add or take away depending on your spice level)
1 teaspoon garam masala powder ( you can get in South Asian markets or even local grocery stores have them)

1 egg
2 tablespoons water
Whisk together

In a pot put the meat, salt and pepper and cook till all the liquid dries and the meat is crumbly ( for that you need to stir frequently).
Let it cool completely.
When cold add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Take the potato ball and make a bowl using your palm, very carefully scoop a tablespoon of the filling and put it in the potato bowl. Cover with the potato and fold it over, Press it tight to remove the air bubbles inside. Make a round ball and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Press slightly to make it  a little flat. Put it on a plate and continue with the rest of the potato balls and  beef filling.
When ready dip in the egg mixture and deep fry or you can arrange on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 F till golden. Serve with lemon, you can squeeze fresh lemon juice on top and yummm!

  2. I am cool with the page and fine with it being an open page. I only bring it up because there was recently a thread on the page discussing the open nature of the page. During that thread it was pointed out that the church opted not to operate a facebook page and so several congregants began and administer the page. There seemed to be a lot of folks who were surprised or had forgotten that the page was unofficial.

  4. That is two millennia of knowledge, civilization and human achievement razed to nothingness by Fascist aggression. Like a terrified Aeneas on the run, Eliot flees the burning shores of Europe to seek reparation to the damages, caused by Western imperialist violence, in the ancient spirituality of the Upanishadas, in its enduring message of peace, compassion and generosity. The coda of The Wasteland is a random series of neurotic visions of a disintegrating reality that is finally salvaged by the incantatory chanting of 'Shantih'.
