Recipe Notes

  • The potato stuffing can be varied to suit your taste. You can add vegetables like green peas, carrots, finely chopped beans etc.; just cook them along with the seasonings.
  • For a different flavor, add sautéed onions along with the other vegetables.
  • The chickpea batter should be thick enough to coat the potato balls completely. If you find the batter runny, add some chickpea flour and if it is too thick, add some water.
