Potato- 2 medium size
Besan (gram or chick pea flour)- ½ cup
Rice flour- 1 tbsp
Water- approx. 3 tbsp
Cumin powder- 1 tsp
Chilli powder- ½ tsp (optional)
Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
Soda bi-carb (baking soda)- ¼ tsp
Salt to taste.
Oil for frying
Peel potatoes and cut into thin round slices. For 15 minutes, soak into salty water. This will help to reduce starch in potato.
Mix besan, rice flour, cumin powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder, soda and salt in a bowl. Also add 2 tsp hot oil (mohan) and mix well. Add water slowly and stir the mixture. There should not be lumps in the batter. The batter should just coat the potato slice and it should not be a flowing batter but a stiff batter.
Serve hot with tamrind chutney and green chutney.
