Potato 65 recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Potato 65 is a delicious mouthwatering dish which can be served as a starter or side dish for fried rice and pulao. Siva always asks me to make gobi fry, paneer fry, potato fry frequently, but I usually avoid deep frying dishes. But once in a month, it's okay to do and today he asked me to make this potato 65 for lunch and I decided to take the video and step by step pictures. It turned out very well and Siva was very happy and he told vera level. I saw this recipe in a cookbook and I tried with little tweaks in the methods. Making potato 65 is easier than you think. Most of these deep fried dishes are made with a batter which includes maida, corn flour and rice flour and sometimes it gets hard after deep frying. But for this recipe, I omitted the corn flour and rice flour for coating the potatoes, just I have added 1/4 cup plain flour (maida) and pepper powder and ginger garlic paste for flavour. The potatoes are golden, crisp and fluffy inside. You don't really need corn flour, rice flour for binding the potatoes. The deep fried potatoes are further tossed with onions, red chillies, green chillies, spice powders and finally thick curd are added and mixed well with the potatoes. Make sure you cook the potatoes with the correct texture because if you overcook the potatoes it will be difficult to coat with the flour plus it absorbs more oil and becomes soggy potatoes.
