Take a ball of potato mixture in palm and flatten to create a thick patty.
Place a teaspoon of pea mixture in center of patty.
Fold over edges of potato over the peas so they no longer show, and flatten again into a thick patty.
Warm up new pan on medium flame and add about a teaspoon of olive oil.
