DIRECTIONS

  • Wash, peel and slice a medium-sized potato into thin concentric circles.
  • Make sure you slice the potato thin and not thick.
  • Pour 2 1/2 cups of water in a bowl.
  • Add salt to taste (2-3 tsps) and mix well.
  • Add the potato slices to this salted water.
  • Mix well.
  • Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  • In a medium sized bowl, make a thick batter with your besan flour, red chilli powder, baking soda, salt and 1 cup of water.
  • Now drain out the water from the potato slices.
  • Dip the slices of potato in the gramflour batter.
  • Allow the slices to be coated with the batter on both sides.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan while you are doing this.
  • Once the oil is hot, and the slices are ready, drop them gently into the oil.
  • I ALWAYS make it a point to lower the flame/heat when adding the slices of potato to the hot oil.
  • I dont want ANY MORE spillovers or kitchen fires!
  • Let the slices fry in the oil.
  • Once the slices are golden brown on one side, turn over and allow them to fry the same way till they are golden brown on the other side.
  • Remove from the pan once fried and drain the excess oil on a clean paper kitchen towel.
  • Transfer to a serving plate.
  • Serve immediately (HOT) with Tomato ketchup and white/potato bread.
  • You can also serve this with green chutney.
  • Enjoy!
  • NOTE: The secret of making this very well is to slice the potato thin and not thick.
  • If you slice the potato thick, then, the potato will not cook and remain raw even once fried!
