I love feeding people - the recession has meant tightening our belts and finding new ways of minding people's bellies well. These lovely potato cakes are very cheap to make and the addition of a spicy sambal lifts them. A firm family favourite. 

Method

Boil the potatoes till tender.  Cool and mash lightly - you need a little texture to them. In a bowl place the herbs, onions, chili, cheese and salt and mix in with the eggs.  Add the potatoes and stir to incorporate. Shape the potato cakes into small rounds and coat in the breadcrumbs. Refrigerate for half an hour. Pour enough oil into a frying pan which will just immerse the cakes.  When very hot fry the cakes till they are golden brown.  Remove and place on some kitchen towel to absorb the fat.  For the sambal, simply place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly.  Place a little of the sambal on each cake. te and serve.
