1. Make the minted peas. Melt butter in pan; add shallots, do not allow to burn. Add crushed peas and sprinkle in Salt, Cumin and Mint. Cook at a very low heat, for about 15 minutes or until the peas are cooked when pressed. Allow to cool down completely.
2. Place the grated Potato in a dish and add all the ingredients mentioned under Potato filling. Combine well.
3. Divide spiced Potato into 6 equal portions, working one portion at a time; make a pattie and roll up the edges a little on your palm. Place a teaspoon full of pea filling in the middle and bring all the edges together, to form a ball.
4. Repeat with the other portions.
5. Roll the balls in flour, then in egg (or milk), finally in the breadcrumbs.
6. Bring oil to deep frying temp and cook until golden brown.
7. Serve warm, with Mayonnaise swirled with Hot Sauce.
