This is a SUPERB recipe and I am surprised why no one has tried it till date. Anyways, that really gives me the honor to be the first one to post my feedback. I made these for snacks this evening and my oh my, was my home a heaven for all who came by today. Everyone really gobbled these down like there was no tomorrow. You should have been here to see it :) I followed the recipe as given. The only additional ingredient I used was 1 1/2 tsps. of fresh mint leaves, chopped fine in the mixture of potatoes. This is a sure keeper and I am making note of this because come winter every year, this will be a regular on our table for family and friends :) So many thank you's to you for sharing this on Zaar.

I made this tonight for my sisters dinner party as an entree, it smelt so good and tasted even better, I will make it for my inlaws when they visit next. I didn't have the chickpea flour so I subbed with rice flour and also didn't have the indian spice asafetida powder so I used onion powder and put it in when I added the garlic and ginger. Thanks for sharing ladyinred

Very good! I was a little scared of the recipe, so I held back on seasoning, but I wish I wouldn't have. It also took me a while to figure out how to form the potato mixture into balls without making a mess...wet hands work wonders. Also, chilling the potato mixture helps too. We had a lot of batter left over, so I let it drop into the oil from a fork and made little crispies that the kids loved. We'll definitely make again with LOTS of seasoning!
