2 large size, long russet potatoes – very thinly sliced [width-wise].

Batter ingredients:

1/2 cup of water.

Deep Frying:
3 to 4 cups Vegetable oil for deep frying

Set sliced potatoes aside for deep frying. Do not mix it to the batter.

Add all batter ingredients including except water to a bowl and mix it well.

Add water gradually, to avoid lumps from forming, stir using whisk each time you add water.
Ensure that the mix is not too thick.
Set this mix aside.

Deep Frying:
Heat vegetable oil over the medium high heat for 1 to 2 minutes or till hot.
Using tongs dip each sliced potato in the batter and drop carefully in the hot oil.
Depending upon the size of your deep frying pan, fry about 6 to 8 fritters at a time.
Fry each batch for about 1 to 2 minutes or till the fritters turn golden brown.
Turn sides of the fritters to make sure that they are fried from both sides.

Goes well with hot green pepper chutney and/or tomato ketchup.
