Servings 4 people


  • 2 large potatoes grated
  • 1 tbsp singhara atta or water chestnut flour
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp black pepper crushed
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 tsp green chillies chopped
  • Rock salt to taste
  • Ghee see recipe note, for frying
  • Coriander leaves garnishing
  • Lemon for garnishing


  • In a large bowl, add grated potato, coriander leaves, ginger, green chillies, singhara atta, cumin seeds, crushed black pepper and rock salt. Mix well.
  • Heat 3-4 tbsp ghee in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Carefully drop a spoonful of potato mixture on the pan and spread it out using a spoon.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook till the pancakes are crisp and golden brown. Each side takes around 4-5 minutes to cook.
  • Transfer to an absorbent paper and repeat the same process with the remaining mixture.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and lemon. Serve Navratri potato pancakes with tamarind chutney.


  • If you are vegan, then instead of ghee you can use coconut oil in the recipe.
  • And if you do not consume a particular ingredient during Navratri, feel free to leave that out.
