Vrat/Fasting Snacks (Crunchy Potato Balls) | Navratri Snacks

Here is another super quick and very tasty Indian Style Potato Snack,this is a very basic recipe and not many spices go into this dish,just a hand full of ingredients that's it.

These Crunchy Potato Balls are rolled in Samak Rice,so they get a nice crunchy exterior, and when you dip them in chilled sweet yogurt the taste is heavenly.
This is mostly made during Navratri as a snack,but then you can try them anytime.

Here is what you need (makes about 10)

2 medium potatoes (boiled and grated)
2 green chilis chopped fine
1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp black salt
Regular salt if needed to your taste
1 cup Samak/Samo Rice

T.i.p > when ever you are making a snack with grated or mashed potato,mash them only when it has cooled down.Potatoes that are just cooked and when mashed right away get a starchy texture and they absorb more oil while frying.

Back to the recipe
Mix all the ingredients well,then make tiny balls and roll in the Samak Rice,and all you do is fry them till brown.Do not turn them for a few seconds,or else they might stick to each other while frying.
Now your done ! Serve these with chilled yogurt mixed with sugar.

 These Crunchy Potato Balls make a very quick snack anytime,not just for your fasting menu.
Make sure you do not skip the sweet yogurt.All the flavours come together when you dip these piping hot balls in something cool and sweet.

Enjoy !
