Method

  • Cook all the potatoes in boiling water until just tender. Then drain well, mash and set aside. 
  • At the same time, process the flour, curry powder, garam masala, salt, pepper and water until smooth, adding a little more water if too thick. 
  • Then transfer the batter to a very large bowl, stir through the garlic and set aside for about 15 mins. 
  • When ready, add the mashed potatoes and diced vegies to the batter. Mix until well combined with a wooden spoon. 
  • Then heat a thin layer of oil in a large non-stick pan and fry heaped teaspoons of the mixture in batches, flattening them a little with a spoon and not overcrowding the pan.  Drain on kitchen paper towels. 
  • nb.  I would prefer blanching the vegies before adding to the batter.
