Peanut Poha Patties

I have been experimenting with tea-time snacks. Because I am bored with the 7 or 8 that I have been rotating for the last four years. There is so much of street food in our country that are ideal for an evening snack. But as I am WFPB, it takes a lot of customisation. Here is an interesting one.
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 cup red rice poha (aval, beaten rice)
2 tbsp brown rice powder
1 onion
1″ piece fresh ginger
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
A few mint leaves
A few coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Clean poha and soak for 10-15 minutes
Grind the roasted peanuts in a grinder to obtain a coarse powder
Set aside
Drain excess water (if present) from the poha
Grind to a paste in a grinder
Add to the ground peanuts
Chop onion, ginger, mint and coriander
Add to the ground peanuts
Add rice flour, chilli powder, cumin powder and salt
Mix everything well to make a thick dough, sprinkling a little water
Pull out enough dough to make a lemon sized ball
Shape into a tikki or pattie
Repeat for the rest of the dough
Heat a tawa
Add patties and cook till one side is brown, on medium flame
Turn over and cook till other side is brown
Remove from flame
Serve with your favourite chutney or sauce
