NOTES

  • To get a deeper red color add kashmiri red chili powder.
  • Make a thick batter as we want the potatoes to be coated well with the batter.
  • Do not overcook the potatoes. They should just be parboiled. Just about 20% cooked so that they peel off easily and when dicing they don’t get mashed up or crumble.
