Potato-and-Pea Croquettes

3 medium large potatoes (peeled and cut in ½-inch cubes)
1 cup peas
¼ cup minced fresh coriander leaves (or parsley)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup sour cream
¼ cup ghee or oil for frying
Boil potatoes in saucepan until very tender. Mash and set aside. Steam peas and set aside.

Add spices and bread crumbs to mashed potatoes. Then add peas. Divide the mixture into 12 3-inch balls. Flatten each ball in the palms of your hands to make into patties.

In nonstick skillet heat ½ of the ghee. Fry 6 of the patties on both sides until golden (about 3 minutes on each side).

Add remaining ghee and fry remaining 6 patties.

Serve hot, with sour cream in the side.
