  4. On medium flame, fry already cut potatoes coated with batter till they become brown in color. Keep them aside once done.

    2. Mix 2 tbs spoon of yoghurt with the remaining batter.
    3. In the same pan, reheat 2 tbsp of oil, add curry leaves, cumin seeds, green chillies. Stir for 2 mins and add 1 tsp grated ginger and saute them all for 3 mins

Sharing is caring :-

  • To make sure that the oil is heated enough,  just add a drop of better to the oil. If the batter solidifies and rises up to the surface of oil, oil is good to go.
