DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a pan. Add the green chillies and crushed garlic and fry on medium heat for about 2 minutes or just till the raw smell of the garlic is gone. The garlic should remain white in color.
  • Add the potato cubes, half the turmeric powder and salt to taste.
  • Mix well whilst mashing half of the potatoes with the back of the ladle on medium heat for about 4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Mix in the coriander leaves.
  • Shape the mixture into lemon-sized balls.
  • Batter:
  • Mix together the gram flour, red chilli powder, remaining turmeric powder, bicarbonate of soda, asafoetida powder and salt to taste with water just enough to make a thick batter.
  • Dip each ball in the batter, then deep fry in hot oil in batches on medium flame until light golden brown in color.
  • Remove onto a paper towel to drain.
