Ingredients (Serves 3)

  • 4 Large Potaoes peeled and cut into thin to medium slices

  • 1/2 a cup fresh chopped coriander
  • Salt, Tumeric powder, Red chilli powder to taste
  • Water to make the batter
  • 500ml Oil for deep frying


  • In a bowl mix the sliced potatoes, add the gram flour, rice flour and all other ingredients, mix well.
  • If the batter s too dry, sprinkle some water to make it pasty so the potato slices are halfy covered with the flour, taste the paste and add the spices accordingly.
  • Once the oil heats, place the potato slices one by one, fry on high flame for the first 2 minutes, then to medium flame, until they get the crispy texture
  • Served with tomato carrot dip, for this take 1 tomato and 1 carrot, 1 green chilli and salt, blend it together, garnish with fresh coriander and tada. 🙂
