Batata Kees Method
Wash and peel the potatoes. Grate the potatoes using the grater with wide tooth.
Soak the grated Potatoes in water for 5 minutes.
Discard the water and wash the potatoes thoroughly with water 3 times till the excess starch is removed from it. Squeeze the water from it.
Heat ghee in a pan, add cumin seeds to it. Once they start to splutter add crushed green chilli.
Now add the grated potato. Cover and cook till its half done.
Then add coarsely grinded peanuts and mix well. Cover and cook again, till it’s done. Stir occasionally so that they do not stick to the pan.
Add lemon juice and salt. Mix well.
Rock salt or sendha namak can be used instead of regular salt.
Adjust the quantity of chilli according to taste.
Make sure not to keep the shredded potato for long once squeezed from water. It turns black.
Squeeze the excess water as much as you can by pressing tightly those potatoes in between your palm.
