Easy Potato snack

This is a simple, quick and tasty snack which you can serve when you've guests at home or as an evening snack for kids after school. This is yet another Lakshmi Nair recipe which I found in her cook book and thought of sharing as potatoes are one of kid's favourite. Hope you'll try this.  

You need
  1. Potato - 2 medium sized (cooked and crumbled)
  2. Rava/Semolina - 1/2 cup
  3. Pepper powder -  1 tsp
  4. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  5. Corn flour - 2 tsp
  6. Coriander leaves (chopped) - 2 tbsp 
  7. Egg - 1/2 of 1 beaten egg
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil for frying

  • Mix together all ingredients from 1 to 8
  • Heat oil
  • When it is hot take small scoops of the above mix and fry in oil until golden brown.
  • Serve with sauce.

    1. Thanks for dropping by... Meena may be you can replace it with softened paneer... I added egg for taste and binding

  12. Hi! I am from south-east Asia and I have to say we have the same recipe as what you post in your blog. Well, ALMOST the same I think. Mine, using coriander leaves and leek. I use lots of leek. Your recipe calls for mixing all ingredients together, including the eggs, but mine leave the eggs for the final touch. So after we mix all ingredients together, we make balls from it, and before deep-frying it we roll the balls into a bowl of beaten eggs and it is ready to fry. I love this dish so much. I usually add chopped beef in it, and it turns out yummy.
