  • Heat oil in a pan/karahi. Oil should be hot before you start adding the potatoes. If the oil is hot hot enough - potatoes will disintegrate in oil. As you drop a potato ball in hot oil, it should rise to the surface and start to sizzle. If it sinks immediately take it out before it messes up the oil. Fry till crisp and golden brown.
