  6. Fry on high heat for few seconds, lower the heat and put a lid over the pan, putting some extra weight (like heavy utensil etc) above it
  7. Let these cook until just done, and remove from oil
  8. Gently flatten these with palm of your hands (beware not to scald your hands) pressing these on a flat surface like rolling board or flat(back) side of a plate.Do not do this harshly or else the potato will crumble and turn into messy stuff. Skip this step if you are not comfortable with it
  9. Drop the pieces again in hot oil, frying on high heat, until crisp and golden brown
  10. Remove all the oil from pan( or remove potatoes, transfer the oil in some container and put the potatoes back in pan)
  11. Sprinkle some salt if needed, and all other dry masalas, mix well for 2-4 seconds
  12. Do not cover these with any lid, or else these will lose the crispness. So serve immediately and Relish.By the time you crib about calories, the potato TOOK will lose its crispness, so fret upon it later :-)
