A mouthwatering Indian appetizer. Mildly spicy, serve hot with sweet and sour sauces, like tamarind sauce (found in the Ethnic section of most grocery stores) and ketchup.

Also known as Katlesi in Swahili. These mince stuffed potato cutlets are my go-to recipe especially in Ramadhan. Our family are all fans of potatos, and these are the easiest and yummiest combination of keema and potatoes.
