Potato Fritters or Aloo Pakoda

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All, 
(Don't you feel it looks like crane st anding on a stone and  waiting to catch a fish!!)


(here for details of the image.)

Last week, I posted Can any one guess what is it? when I caught this photo. When I read Nithu's post (Potato Bajji), I remembered that I also promised that I will post the recipe for it in this week. Even she got different recipe.
So here is my recipe!
Potato - 3 big
Keep potatoes in water for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove clean and cut into round thick slices. If you feel potatoes are not clean, peel the skin and cut in to thick round slices.

Oil to fry pakodas

For batter :
Gram flour -  1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Hot oil - 1 tbsp
Eating soda ( soda-bi carb) -  a pinch
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Mix all in a bowl with little water to make the thick batter. Keep it aside for 5 minutes.
Heat oil in a thick kadai. Dip the potato slices slowly seeing that the slice is covered with full batter and slide them in to oil. Fry till golden color, in batches slowly on medium flame. 

Potato Pakodas are ready to eat with tea or kurmura(churmuri).

Keep Smiling,
