Nice recipe.. Is it possible to bake the pattice instead of deep fry? If so at what temperature?

Tarla Dalal    HiBijal, I am sorry but you cannot bake these pattice. It is necessary to deep-fry or you can try shallow-frying it or cooking it on a tava with little oil. Do try this recipe and let us know about your experience. Happy cooking

A great marriage of flavours... sweet, spicy and sour... the the textures are great too... the crispy outer covering from the arrowroot coating, the gooey potato layer right under it... and the crunchy stuffing... packed with flavour... A recipe to perfection...
