Now add in enough water and whisk well such that you have a lump free batter which is free flowing , batter should be of medium consistency here (not too thick nor too thin).
  • Add in methi leaves and mix well.
  • Peel the potato and slice them into thin sized roundels and keep aside.
  • Now heat oil till the smoking point , take a spoonfull of this oil and pour on the batter this is to ensure that they come out crispy, now when the oil is heated up then simmer a bit dip these roundels in the batter and deep fry till golden brown.
