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
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.
