Simple and fast, yet delicious, these Indian battered and deep fried vegetable bits are great served by themselves as a snack or as an appetizer or side dish. Might I shamelessly suggest my Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani) as a main dish? Serving size depends on how many other items are on one's plate to fill up on!

Directions

  1. Boil the potato or yam slices until *just* tender, being careful not to overcook.
  2. Mix batter ingredients well. Beat in a blender for 4-5 minutes to incorporate air (this will make the batter fluffier). Let batter rest 1/2 hour in a warm place.
  3. Add the vegetables and mix in evenly.
  4. Deep fry in oil that is heated to 375° until deep brown (somewhere between 4-6 minutes per batch). Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
  5. Serve with cilantro or mint chutney or cucumber raita.
