Batate Kaap (Pan Fried Potato Fritters)

batate kaap
Konkani pan fried potato fritters with a crisp semolina crust.  Easy yet tasty appetizers.  Eggplant/baingan and arum root/colocasia root fritters can also be relished in a similar way.  

Potato - 1 big
Semolina/Rava/Sooji - 1/2 cup
Red Chilli Powder/Cayenne Pepper - 1 tbsp
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/8 tsp
Tamarind/Imli/Chinch - small piece

1. Peel the potato skin and dice it into thick round slices.
2. In a mixing bowl, add potato slices.  Add red chilli powder, turmeric, tamarind, salt on the slices.  Mix/Toss well  and keep it covered for 30 - 40 minutes.
3. Coat the potato slices in semolina.  Heat a pan and add 1 tbsp oil.  Fry the semolina coated potato till crisp.  Check with a spatula to see if potatoes are cooked.  Shallow fried and crisp Batatya Phodi or Kaap is ready.
4. Instead of semolina you can use corn meal (not corn flour) which has similar texture as semolina.  You can also add little salt, little red chilli powder in semolina as well.
