Non-Fried Batata Wada

I’m Enjoying my stay @ Chennai. Enjoying my Mom’s Cooking. Shopping, Shopping and Shopping.
Recently bought Tarla Dalal’s Non-Fried Snacks CookBook. It has got some great recipes, that can be baked/cooked on a Tava instead of Deep Frying. Me and My Sister, tried Batata Wadi recipe from that book. Came out great.
Here comes the recipe.

For the Batter

1/2cup Besan
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp chilli powder
a pinch asafoetida
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste

For the Wadas

2 green chillies, finely chopped.
1 tsp  ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch asafoetida
2 cups boiled, peeled and mashed potates
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp choped coriander
1 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste
Oil for cooking

For the Batter

Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl, add enough water to make a batter of pouring consistency.  Keep Aside.

For the Wadas.
Heat oil in  a small pan and splutter mustard seeds, add curry leaves and asafoetida and saute for few seconds.  Add Green chillies, ginger-garlic paste and saute again for few seconds.
Add Potatoes, turmeric powder, coriander, lemon juice and salt and mix well. Remove from the flame and cook.
Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and shape them into flat round wadas.

Dip the wadas in the batter and place them on a greased non-stick pan.
Cover and cook on a low flame for 3 to 4 minutes.  Turn upside own, cover again and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes, using lil oil.

Remove the lid and cook the sides holding the wadas with your fingers till they turn golden brown.
Serve hot. Enjoy with sauce.
