  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat water and butter to boiling. Remove from heat; stir in milk and potatoes just until moistened. Let stand about 30 seconds or until liquid is absorbed. Beat with fork until smooth. Transfer to medium bowl; let stand 10 minutes to cool.

    Sprinkle garam masala, chili powder, coriander, cumin, ginger and salt over potatoes; stir to combine. Sprinkle cornstarch over mixture; stir to combine. Add peas, 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, and the jalapeño chile. Mix completely. In small bowl, mix remaining tablespoon cilantro with the yogurt; stir to blend, and set aside.

    Divide potato mixture into 12 equal-size balls. Gently flatten each ball into 1 1/2-inch patty, 1/2 inch thick.
