I am a "lifer" and yesterday I made your potato pancakes (above). I used one Serrano pepper minus most (but not all) of the seeds. It was plenty spicy enough for me (and I love spices). The recipe itself was delicious and I LOVED it!. Thanks for the great recipe!
I have added the recipes for the chutneys to go with these patties!
The recipes are at the bottom of this recipe and here:

Its not difficult at all to obtain chickpea flour from Main or Fraser 45th to 55 Ave (India/S.E.Asia Market) Safeway, buylow food and Superstores also carry it.
I do not recommend all-purpose flour for this recipe because when you eat you'll definitely feel (dense) floury taste in your mouth.
If you cannot use chickpea flour then simply bind these potato patties with breadcrumbs and/or eggs (you may use both)
Try both ways with all-purpose flour or the method I explained you'll feel the difference
Hi to all
I made these yesterday 6 patties 110 grams each looked great till went to fry them then they fell apart very disappointed as a lot of work went into the making but on the positive side the taste on what I rescued was exquisite I do like your site and I'm not being a moaner just need a bit of help and would like to make them again any tips
Donal, there could be a few reasons why this has happened...without more details here is my feedback. Perhaps the potatoes you used were not starchy enough. Also, if the potatoes are too big when forming the patties this can cause the patties to fall apart.
When cooking, if the patties start to fall apart try refrigerating them for 30 mins to an hour, the cold will help them to stay together better when frying. Another thing, when frying the patties do not touch them too much as this could also cause them to fall apart. Leave them to cook on the one side to form a nice crust and then gently flip them over. Hope this helps. Cheers!
