Crispy bhajias made with grated potatoes, perked up with green chillies and coriander! It is interesting to note that this Crispy Potato Bhajia is held together purely by the starch in the grated potatoes and does not use any other binder like boiled potatoes, plain flour or cornflour. This makes it all the more crispier. But, there are some things you need to take care of to make sure the bhajias don’t disintegrate.


Firstly, you need to squeeze out any water from the grated potatoes before including the other ingredients. Also, you need to add the salt only at the very end, just before you deep-fry the bhajias because the mixture will start letting out water after you add the salt. So, to save time, keep the oil on the stove and start preparing the other ingredients, so that by the time oil is hot enough, the remaining ingredients will be ready. You can add the salt and start frying the bhajias.


Indeed, a perfect snack to have garma garam with a hot cup of Masala Chai !

This crispy bhajias are really difficult to resist. The most important thing while making thsese bhajias is tha the oil has to be really hot before you make the bhajia mixture. The coriander and green chillies impart a really good flavour. Also it is very quick and ready in minutes.
