Oil for frying
1 and 1/2 cup Gram flour
2 cups white flour
Chilli powder
Lemon juice


  • Mix your salt. chilli powder and lemon juice to make a thick paste.

  • Next mix the gram flour and white flour with water to make a thick batter (not too thick and not too thin).Add some salt in the batter to taste.
  • On a medium high stove, place your frying vessel and add oil.
  • Once oil is hot, place your potatoes in the batter and start frying.
  • Pick up the potatoes from the batter and dip them into the hot oil.
  • Do not over fill the vessel.
  • Turn them to cook the other side.
  • When both sides are cooked, remove from heat and drain them.
  • Serve with chutney.


  • The oil should be hot but not too hot, you don’t want to burn the potatoes.
  • The amount of ingredients is just a guidance, you can use less or more to suit your taste.
  • The amount of white flour I use is always more than the amount of gram flour.
  • Do not over fill your vessel with potatoes or they will stick together.
