Potato- 2 medium size
Besan (gram or chick pea flour)- ½ cup
Rice flour- 1 tbsp
Water- 3 tbsp
Cumin powder- 1 tsp
Chilli powder- ½ tsp
Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
Chopped coriander- 2 tsp (optional)
Soda bi-carb (baking soda)- ¼ tsp
Salt to taste.
Oil for frying


  • Peel potatoes and cut into thin round slices. For 15 minutes, soak into salty water. This will help to reduce starch in potato.
    Mix besan, rice flour, cumin powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder, soda and salt in a bowl. Add water slowly and stir the mixture. There should not be lumps in the batter.
  • Heat the oil in a wok. Turn flame to medium heat once oil is hot. Drain the water from potato slices into the batter, they are completely coated and deep fry them till colour turns nice golden. Be careful not to over crowd the wok. You can put 5-6 bhajji as in at a time.
  • Serve hot with any chutney.
