How to make Potato Basil Fritters Recipe
To begin with Potato Basil Fritters, peel and grate the potatoes. Put them in salt water for five minutes.
After 5 minutes, squeeze and remove all the water possible from the potato.
Spread it on a kitchen towel and press it to remove any remaining water content.
Transfer the grated potatoes to a mixing bowl. Add the Italian seasoning, chilli flakes, egg, bread crumbs, salt and chopped basil to this and mix everything properly.
Heat a pan over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, pour 2 teaspoons of oil on it.
Give the pan a swirl to spread the oil. Spoon 1.5 tablespoon of the potato mixture onto the pan and spread it a little.
Make 3 to 5 of them at a time, depending on the size of your pan. Flip it over once you see that it is golden brown.
Press it gently with the spoon and let it crisp up. Repeat the same process with the remaining mixture.
I am a Designer and an Artist by profession. Cooking, baking, photography and styling is an extension of my creative self, another medium of expression. Cooking and Plating was no different from painting for me. Playing with colours on plate, using different textures, composition in photography was all that I had learnt as a student, which I am showcasing using food as a medium. I love everyday cooking and how it can be made exciting. Kitchen is not only about food. I not only respect the food but also the waste we generate while cooking. I am a firm believer of composting and I make sure my kitchen generates as less waste as possible.
