Bring potatoes and enough water to cover to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are fork-tender, 15–20 minutes. Drain; return potatoes to the pot. Mash with yogurt, egg, chives, onion, and salt. Let mixture cool 10 minutes, then shape into 12 (3-inch) patties. Place the panko crumbs on a sheet of wax paper and dredge patties into crumbs.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the patties and cook until browned and crisp, 3–4 minutes per side. Carefully transfer patties to a serving platter. Repeat with remaining olive oil, canola oil and patties. Serve hot.
