Makes about 15-20 patties.
1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
Clean the leeks and remove the leaves up to light green part.
Cut the leek into rings 1/2 cm wide.
Put the rings into a pot, add a 1/4 cup cold water, cover the pot and simmer for about 5-10 minutes on medium–high heat until leeks are soft.
Pour the leeks into a strainer and wait until all water has drained.
Let the leeks cool for 20-30 minutes.
Pour the leeks into a large mixing bowel.
Add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs and the egg into the bowel and mix.
Take a full spoon of mixture and form patties with wet hand about 5-6 cm diameter and about 1 cm height.
Pour oil into a frying pan, about 1 cm deep. Heat oil over medium-high heat.
Put patties into the hot oil with enough space to allow easy turning patties over.
Fry until golden brown and turn patty over, using two flat spoons to avoid breaking them up.
Fry on the second side also until golden brown.
Remove patties and spread over a paper towel sheet to absorb the oi.
