Wash the potatoes, but leave on the skins. Boil the potatoes until fully cooked.
Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Add the onion, leek and garlic; cook and stir until onion is tender. Then add carrot, celery, peas, parsley and spices. Sauté everything for 10 to 12 minutes or until the carrot and peas are soft.

Take about 2 tablespoons of the potato dough and flatten into a disk, place one spoonful of vegetable mixture on top and cover with more potato dough and form into a disk.
Heat approximately 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan, and fry the potato cakes at medium heat until golden brown on both sides.
