- With clean dry hands, combine the mixture while mashing it some more to smoothness.
- Place a wok or deep frying pan over medium heat with oil in it.
- Meanwhile line a plate with paper towels and shape the potato mixture into tikkis.
- As soon as the oil heats up, break off a tiny portion of the mixture and drop it in the oil. If it doesn’t break then the mixture is perfect. Else, add a little more flour.
