Servings 4 servings


  • 2 medium potatoes
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon red chilli powder or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dry mango powder or lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon oil + more for greasing

For Coating:

  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup fine semolina Rava or Sooji
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and spray it with cooking oil. Keep aside.
  • Peel and slice the potatoes. Soak them in water for about 10-15 mins. Drain and soak all the excess water with either a paper/kitchen towel.
  • Transfer these dry potato slices to a bowl. Add all the dry spice powders like turmeric, red chilli, dry mango, salt and 1 teaspoon oil and mix all together. Make sure the masala coats all the potatoes slices evenly.
  • Mix the coating mix ingredients into a bowl or plate.
  • Take one slice and dip in in the coating mix. Lay it on pre greased baking tray. Repeat this for all slices.
  • Spray all slices with some oil and bake for about 20-30 mins,flipping half way through or until crisp and done.
  • Serve warm and crispy as an appetizer or side with your favorite meal.


  • The longer you keep the potato slices marinated it will start oozing water especially after adding salt. So apply spices, salt, and bake immediately.
  • Cut the potatoes into even slices so that they cook evenly.
  • The extra coating mix can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature and used next time. 
  • Variations - You can replace the potato with other veggies like eggplant (brinjal, baingan) or even cauliflower to make this recipe.
  • Batata Kaap can also be shallow fried or air fried at 370°F for 10-15 mins flipping halfway through. May vary based on the air-fryer brand.
