  • 02

    Make a thick-ish batter with water and all ingredients above except the potato

  • 03

    To test if the batter is right, dip a piece of potato in and see if it coats it well without dripping off

  • 04

    Heat oil in a pan and when it just about starts to smoke, add the potato pieces dipped in batter

  • 05

    To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a small amount of batter into it and see if it immediately sizzles to the top
