  • Add on : While making vada you can add cornstarch or rice flour along with besan. It not only makes your batata vada crispy but also helps to make a perfect round shape.

 

  • Consistency of batter : The perfect consistency of the batter for batata vada should be medium thick. Because if the batter is too thin then you will get no taste of the outer layer and feel like just eating potato. If the batter is too thick then the outer layer can become hard, and chewy.

 

  • Cooking temperature : The best temperature of oil for frying batata vada is medium flame. Because if the oil is too hot, then the outside of the batata vada will get fried but the inside will remain uncooked. Similarly, if the oil is not enough hot, then batata vada will absorb a lot of oil and becomes soggy while frying.
