BATTER DIPPED POTATO FRY / POTATO BHAJJI

image

The perfect snack for iftar. This is an all time favourite item on our iftar table since years. All of a sudden, this simple potato fry took me back to my glorious school days…the rolla days… Back in those years, I was the one in my family who goes for all the grocery shoppings and many more such things. This bhajji used to be an item in the menu of almost all the cafeterias. At times my mother used to make this at home, but she says, she never gets it rite. I remember the times when I used to run to the cafeteria to get this to be delivered on our table right on time of iftar. Without being much nostalgic, let me get on with the procedure…

Ingredients

Potato   –   1 big and long, thinly sliced
Gram flour/besan   –   1 1/4 cups
Red chilly powder   –   1/2 teaspoon
Cumin powder   –   1/4 teaspoon
Asofoeteda   –   a pinch

Method

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, except potato and oil.
Mix well to form a neither too thick nor too thin batter.
Wash the potato slices and pat dry with a kitchen paper.
Heat oil in a deep kadhai.
Dip each potato slice in the batter and fry it in the oil.
Do not overload the kadhai. Fry it in small batches.
Drain on to a kitchen paper.
Serve hot.
