  • Always fry in batches.The potatoes should be crisp.
  • Don't make a thick batter and coating, the coating should be mild on the potatoes.
  • If you have onion powder add it, I didnt have so added raw onion while serving.
  • Garlic powder is must in this recipe so don't skip it.
  • Adjust spice powders according to your taste and preference.
