Batate phodi recipe -  batate phodi is an easy to prepare healthy fritter which I make often for our lunch or dinner. This simple roasted potatoes are prepared by shallow frying the masala coated potatoes. It has mild ajwain and chili flavour. This roasted potato is a nice side dish for pulao and spicy rice. I served it with vangi bhath and cucumber raita. It was yummy. So, I thought to share the recipe with you all. This is a popular side dish in Coastal Karnataka and very similar to alambe phodi made with mushrooms. Potatoes are widely used in those parts and this fritter is commonly prepared in coastal side homes with their own version.
