Lockdown Cooking | Potato-Coconut Fritters

This time I decided to experiment with a very popular Gujarati delicacy – Potato Coconut Fritters, also called as Farali Kachori!

What did I use?

  • Boiled and mashed potatoes – 1 kg
  • arrowroot powder – 2 tablespoon
  • Salt – as required
  • Oil – for frying
  • Grated coconut – 1
  • Chopped coriander – 4 tablespoon
  • Ginger – green chilli paste – 1 tablespoon
  • Pepper powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Roasted peanuts ( semi-blended ) 2 tablespoon
  • Sugar – 1 tablespoon
  • [ OPTIONAL ] Dry fruits – as required

How did I make it?

  • I prepared a stuffing by mixing grated coconut,ginger-chilli paste,salt,sugar,coriander,roasted peanuts,salt,sugar and dry fruits.I gave it a light mix and kept it aside.
  • Now, for the base, I mixed mashed potatoes, salt and arrowroot powder. I had to ensure that I don’t over-mix else my potatoes will become sticky.
  • My next step was to prepare the fritters! I took some potato base and filled the stuffing inside and prepared a ball shape, to give it a final touch, something like this
  • That’s it! I deep-fried in medium flame until crisp and brown
  • Farali Kachori or Potato coconut fritters are ready!
