potato bajji instant Indian snacks

Ingredients
This recipe is for 2
Potato 1 big-pealed
Gram flour-2tbsp
Rice flour-1tbsp
red chili powder-1/2tea spoon
salt to taste
Ajwain/ Vama-1/2tbsp
Jeera-1/4tbsp
Oil for deep fry

Method
Peal and wash potato. Choose a thin blade slicer(If you have mandolin slicer it is well and good). Slice the potato to very thin pieces. Now take a bowel and add all the ingredients and mix well. add 1tbsp of water and mix well. To this mixture add all thinly sliced potato pieces and mix care fully. Now heat a thick bottom deep pan. Pour enough oil for deep fry and heat it under medium flame. Add one by one potato piece and deep fry till it is golden brown. Take them out and place them on a paper towel so that excess oil gets absorbed. These bajji will be crispy only when they are fried under medium flame, this is the healthy way of frying the vegges. Under high flame there is a chance of converting fatty acides to cis for to the trans, which is very dangerous. And another advantage of cooking them under medium flame is they will cook completely. The crispness of the chips also depends on how thin you slice them, thinner the slices more crispy they come!!!

Here is the list of the cooking oil that you can use for different purposes.

Oils that are suitable for high-temperature frying (above 230 °C/446 °F) because of their high smoke point
  • Avocado oil
  • Corn oil
  • Mustard oil
  • Palm oil
  • Peanut oil (or groundnut oil)
  • Rice bran oil
  • Safflower oil
  • Sesame oil (semi-refined)
  • Soybean oil
  • Sunflower oil
Oils that are suitable for medium-temperature frying (above 190 °C/374 °F) include:
  • Almond oil
  • Cottonseed oil
  • Diacylglycerol (DAG) oil
  • Ghee, Clarified butter
  • Grape seed oil
  • Lard
  • Olive oil (Virgin, and refined)
  • Rapeseed oil (Canola oil or "vegetable oil" )
  • Mustard oil
  • Walnut oil
Hope you find this infromation usefull!!!!
