Potato cutlets

There is nothing like crispy potato cutlets which are soft and tender from inside. This is my friend the quick and easy  recipe of potato cutlets .
Potato cutlets are very famous dish in Pakistani  and as grow up in Peshawar we make cutlets very mild but as you go to other parts of Pakistan ,you will notice  they like spicier  cutlets .
But when it comes to my choice I want to have potato cutlets with a hot cup of tea or make a burger out of it  and in both situations  I like mild not hot, so I can dip it in to chatney.
 I remember 5 years back my husband boss invite him for his farewell party .since everyone was bring I dish with them so I make these potato cutlets ,arrange them in large silver tray .I was very worried because all the people were Americans  and it was my first time to cook for them .but  I was very pleased when this was the first thing  despaired from the table and I was very happy that  everyone liked it.
