Scottish Tattie Fritters | How to make Tattie Fritter Scottish Style

>>  Wednesday, September 7, 2016

For the third day of making Tea Time Snacks with Potato as the main ingredient, I have something from Scottish cuisine. I had an idea of making each day from different countries, somehow I repeated our own cuisine twice. 

These Scottish Tattie Fritters are almost like our own potato bajji, however the difference lies in using sparking water to mix the batter. That ensures the fritters to be crispy and nice for a longer time. The best part was that even Chinnu loved it. With any new dish that gets made, Konda and Peddu are always ready to try. However Chinnu always keeps away from trying new dishes. This was the first time he was willing to even bite into it.

I wanted to keep it as true to the original recipe and sparingly used pepper powder for Hubby dear's fritters alone. Even then he said though it tastes great, he was not able to eat more as it was bland for his taste. Rest of us gobbled it up quickly!

Enjoy these Scottish Tattie Fritters for Tea Time and relax!

I was inspired by this post, where the author shares her childhood memories. she says Malt vinegar a classic british condiment makes a great side for this snack.

Scottish Tattie Fritters

Ingredients Needed:

Large Potatoes, sliced as thin circles - 2 large

For the Batter: 

All purposer Flour / Maida - 2 cups
Salt to taste
Baking Powder 1 tsp
Sparkling Water - 1/2 to 1 cup approx.
Pepper powder as per taste (I added this, not included in the original recipe)

How to make Tattie Fritters

First peel and slice the potatoes into 1/2 inch slices, soak in water.

For the batter

Take the flour, salt, peper, baking powder in a bowl and slowly add the sparking water. The whole mixture will bubble up.

Slowly using a spoon whisk the entire mixture till you get a thick batter. Adjust the seasoning.

Heat the kadai with oil, dip the sliced potato in the batter and gently drop into hot oil. 

Cook on both sides till it turns to golden. Drain on a kitchen towel.

Seve with ketchup.

The food in English countries is bland but with the right accompaniment it will be perfect .

Tell me about the bland taste. Got a similar remark my hubby and have to look for a new recipe now 😥. Scottish fritters looks delicious.

As we are so used to spicy stuff, just adding pepper powder tends to make it sound bland. But I love the taste as well as my daughter. These fritters look so inviting..

As Gayathri said we got used for spicy stuff,so only black pepper is not enough for our taste buds.BTW the fritter sounds interesting and tempting..

We are so used to eating spicy things that I end up adding chili powder in every recipe. Love the idea of using sparkling water to make the fritters.

Looks and sounds like tempura. Delicious but a bit bland to my chili powder loving kids.

Potatoe fritters with sparkling water sounds interesting. I have to try this though I probably have to add a dash of chilly powder to the batter for the husband to even think about trying it.

These Scottish Fritters sounds interesting. Nice idea to use sparkling water to create the fizzy effect.
