Potato Bajji/Potato Poppers

I made some mirchi bajji this weekend and I had left over batter. So I decided to make some potato bajjis. Other good options to make bajjis with this batter will be whole sprigs of curry leaves, pan leaves, raw banana slices etc. Some time soon I will try to post curry leaf bajjis which my mom used to make all the time.

For now I only had potatoes on hand and went that route. Below is the simple recipe for a quick snack.

Ingredients
1 big Potato peeled
1 1/2 to 2 cups Besan (Senaga pindi)
1 tbsp Rice Flour (Biyyam pindi)
1 tsp Aijwan powder(vaamu podi)
1 tsp red chilli powder
pinch of baking soda
Salt per taste
Oil for Frying
Method
Cut the potato into thin circles and put them in bowl of water to prevent the potato slices from discoloration.
Mix Besan, rice flour, Aijwan, Salt, Baking soda, red chilli powder in a bowl. Adding water, prepare medium thick batter (thick enough to have a generous coating on the potato slices).

Line a plate with paper towels and keep aside. In a heavy bottom pan heat oil for frying. Once the oil is hot enough for frying, dip the potato slices one by one in batter and gently drop from the sides of pan into hot oil and deep fry until golden.

Drain the fried poppers on paper towels and serve hot with side of onions and tomato ketchup or mint sauce.
