  • to taste Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • 1 inch piece Ginger roughly chopped
  • 4-5 cloves Garlic peeled
  • 16-20 Curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Red chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Coriander powder
  • 2 tablespoons Rice flour
  • 4 tablespoons Oil


  1. Cut potatoes into half-inch thick slices. Keep soaked in water to prevent discolouration. Boil sufficient water with salt and a pinch of turmeric, add potato slices and cook on high heat for two to three minutes. Drain the parboiled potatoes immediately and spread out the slices to cool.

Apply this paste evenly on the parboiled potato slices and leave aside for ten minutes. Heat sufficient oil in a pan and shallow fry potato slices in small batches, without overcrowding the pan.
  3. Turn over potato slices a couple of times and cook till crisp and completely cooked. Drain well on an absorbent kitchen paper and serve hot.
