Baked stuffed sweet potato patties are healthy snack recipe as these are baked with little oil. My kidoos and nephew love palak paneer so wanted to try this patties with palak panner stuffing. This is great way to make kids eat veggies with no guilt. This recipe is part of Bellynirvana program from Plattershare in association with Placeof Origin.in. Through this program I have received Dhansak masala. This masala is aromatic and strong in flavor. In this baked patties recipe the outer sweet potato covering gives a nice sweet and spicy bite while the inner stuffing is so flavored with dhansak masala giving an authentic parsi touch to patties. Do try these simple, healthy recipe and do share your feedback.

  • Dip in corn flour besan paste. Roll them in rusk powder.
  • Refrigerate the patties for half an hour.
  • Preheat the oven at 200℃ for 10 minutes. Bake the patties on parchment paper lined baking tray for 25 minutes. Apply little oil and bake on both the sides.
  • Grill the patties for 2 to 4 minutes to get nice crisp layer. Serve hot with sauce or green chutney, sweet chutney.


Salt and spiciness can be adjusted as per taste.
The variation of these patties is using mashed potato or raw banana for outer covering.
Rusk powder or bread crumbs can be used for coating.
Refrigeration makes the patties hold the shape during baking.
Grilling the patties is optional, I prefer this way to give a nice crust and colour to patties.
