Crispy Potato Bhajia

These crispy potato fritters also known as bhajias are best served hot with any kind of chutney or hot sauce. They make for a quick and spicy appetizer any time. Can't really go wrong with potatoes let alone fried potatoes in batter !

Enjoy :)


4 medium size potatoes
1 cup of chickpea flour
1 tbs of cornflour
3 tbs lemon juice
1 tsp salt
2 cloves of garlic - crushed
2-3 green chillies - crushed
1 small bunch of coriander leaves finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Just a little bit of water to mix potatoes


  • Slice potatoes as thinly as possible and soak in a bowl of cold water
  • Mix all other ingredients together
  • Drain potatoes but do not pat dry (this will make it easier for flour to stick to potatoes)
  • Add potatoes to flour and mix until well coated- A little bit of water might be required to make sure the potatoes are well coated on both sides
  • Allow to rest for 15-20 mins
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium heat
  • Fry potatoes until golden brown and potatoes cooked through inside
  • Serve immediately
