DIRECTIONS

  • Add water to the Besan.
  • Besan has a tendency to be very clumpy, so you should add just a few tablespoons at a time to keep the batter smooth.
  • Add the Chilli powder, cumin powder, garlic, ginger, salt and chopped coriander and stir the batter.
  • The potatoes should be sliced very thinly.
  • No thicker than 1/4 of an inch.
  • At this point test one slice of potato in the batter.
  • There should just be a thin coat of batter.
  • Heat the oil in a pan.
  • Use a larger frying pan so that you have more surface area.
  • The oil doesn't need to be too deep since the potato slices are very thin.
  • Dip the potato slices in the batter and fry them till they are golden brown.
  • Remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and set them on a paper towel for a minute to soak up the excess oil.
