  • Boil potatoes, then peel the skin and mash it well using potato masher or spoon n keep aside.
  • In a bowl, add mashed potato, finely chopped onions, cilantro, ginger, n shredded carrots and mix everything well.
  • And in another bowl add all dry ingredients, gram flour, rice flour,salt,chili powder and hing mix well then add the dry ingredients to the potato mixture and combine well.
  • Sprinkle water and mix well to a tight dough(will be bit sticky, thats ok but not too much of moisture).
  • Now heat oil in a wok/kadai, when its get really hot, pinch a small amount of dough slightly flatten it using finger tips and drop it hot oil.
  • Fry in medium high heat, after 1 or 2 minutes turn other side and fry till it turns light golden brown and crisp.
  • Once done remove from the oil using slotted ladle and drain the excess oil in paper towel.
  • Do repeat the same for all remaining dough.
  • That's it...yummy n crispy Potato Fritters ready. Serve With any desired sauce or simply enjoy with ketchup and a cup of Masala Chai or Espresso Coffee.

Instead of chili powder, u can use finely chopped green chilies.
U can also add any desired chopped or grated vegetable to this fritters, like broccoli,cabbage,cauliflower,spinach,beets,etc.
After frying a batch of fritter, wait for a minute to get oil hot again n then start dropping the second batch and fry in medium high heat.
Do not add water than the mentioned amount to the dough mixture, moisture from the potato, onion n carrots itself enough to bind.
If u add more, your fritters won't turn crisp n also it absorbs more oil n turn soggy.
I tried baking these fritters but it doesn't come out well...besan inside the fritters didn't get cooked well, wasted 6 patties :(
Didn't tried toasting it in tawa/griddle as i don't want to waste the stuff again.
