Before you start

These patties can be either fried or baked. The Nutrition Facts table on this page assumes that baking will be used.

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.


  1. If using the baking method: Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F. Lightly oil a baking dish. Alternatively, for deep-frying: Preheat a sufficient quantity of peanut oil to 175°C/350°F in an electric fryer or in a large skillet.
  2. Put all the ingredients, but half of the bread crumbs in a blender. Process until a smooth consistency is obtained.
  3. Form the mixture into small balls, then flatten them slightly into patties and roll into the remaining bread crumbs.
  4. Baking: Transfer the patties on the prepared baking dish and spray them evenly with a vegetable oil spray. Cook in the middle of the oven 12-15 min until golden-brown, turning them once. Deep-frying: Working in batches, deep-fry the patties about 5 min per side until golden-brown, then set them on paper towels to drain. Serve.
