The strong flavour of garlic transforms the soft and soothing potato into an exciting snack!
Here, a mixture of potatoes and garlic is coated with a besan batter and deep fried, to get a Spicy Lehsuni Vada, which tastes great when served independently or between a pair of pav buns! It can be served as a starter or evening snack with tea. Add to the garlicky notes by serving it with sukhi lehsuni chutney. It is important to serve this immediately because the top layer of besan tends to become thick after some time it must be served immediately to relish the nice crispy texture.
