Boil the potatoes, cool, peel, crush and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, pour flour, salt and lemon juice.
Add water and whisk into a thick batter. Mix well for at least 2-3 minutes until the batter is thick and smooth.
Add the crushed potatoes and green chillies to the batter. Mix well.
Heat oil on medium flame in a frying pan.
Drop lemon-sized balls of the batter in the hot oil and deep fry, turning until they are golden brown.
Set on a paper towel to drain. Serve immediately with dipping sauce of choice.
An airy batter is the key to crisp fritters. So make sure you whisk the batter for a considerable time.
These fritters tend to join while being fried. To avoid this, let the fritters brown on one side. Use a cooking spoon to gently pry apart the fritters before flipping them.
