For the third day of Snacking all the way, I have a deep fried chips made with Potato. I had plans for making puffs, somehow all the three days I have been trying, I just couldn’t make it. So that will be following for another day.
When I was thinking of this snack, I had problem with finding the right mould. I wanted a thin flat one, that would give a ribbon pakoda style. I couldn’t find it and ended up with this shape. I thought of baking it, then as time was short, I deep fried it. These are supposed to be consumed right away as these don’t stay crispy for long. However after frying, serve hot with sauce, its so delicious!
