4 Servings
  • 2cup
    Potato (grated)
  • 1/2cup
    Sama Flour (Barnyard Millet Flour)
  • 1tsp
    Sendha Namak (Rock Salt)
  • 1/2tbsp
    Red Chilli Flakes
  • 2
    Green Chillies (finely chopped)
  • 1/2tbsp
    Ginger (finely chopped) (optional)
  • 1/2tbsp
    Amchur (dry Mango Powder)
  • 1tsp
    Cumin Powder
  • 1tbsp
    Coriander Powder
  • 2tbsp
    chopped Coriander leaves
  • 1/2cup
    Water (as needed)
  • Oil for frying


  1. Grate the potatoes with a grater in one direction and soak them in water to prevent browning.

  2. Rinse and squeeze out water, then pat them dry.

  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the grated potatoes, sama flour, sendha namak, red chilli flakes, green chillies, ginger (if using), amchur, cumin powder and coriander powder.

  4. Mix gently; add water if needed to bind the ingredients.

  5. Heat oil in a deep pan or kadai over medium heat until it's hot enough for frying. To test, drop a small amount of the potato mixture into the oil; it should sizzle and rise to the surface without browning too quickly.

  6. Take small portions of the potato mixture, flatten them slightly with your fingers, and then place them in the hot oil.

  7. Turn the fritters occasionally, and fry until they turn crispy and golden.

  8. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fritters to a kitchen towel to drain excess oil.

  9. Serve hot with a side of curd mixed with green or tamarind chutney.

  10. Enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  1. Soaking and rinsing the potatoes removes excess starch for crispier fritters.
