  • 2 large Potatoes sliced as thin circles

For the Batter

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour / Maida
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Sparkling Water (1/2 to 1 cup approx.)
  • Pepper Powder as per taste (I added this, not included in the original recipe)


How to make Tattie Fritters

  • First peel and slice the potatoes into 1/2 inch slices and soak in water.

For the Batter

  • Take the flour, salt, pepper powder, baking powder in a bowl and slowly add the sparkling water. The whole mixture will bubble up.
  • Slowly using a spoon, whisk the entire mixture till you get a thick batter. Adjust the seasoning.
  • Heat the kadai with cooking oil. Dip the sliced potato in the batter and gently drop into the hot oil.
  • Cook on both sides till it turns to golden. Drain on a kitchen towel.
  • Serve with ketchup.


The peeled potatoes are sliced very thin.
Soaking these sliced potatoes in water will prevent them from getting oxidized.
Make the batter just before frying and ensure the oil is at the right smoking point.
