52 week project – Sri Lankan Cookbook – Potato Cutlets

My mum used to make these potato cutlets with tin tuna fish and fennel and they were so good! Though for this version I am trying a vegetarian alternative. The kids really loved them with a canola mayo and I had it with a mango pickle and it was the perfect accompaniment.
