Zee made her sons some Indian Fries called Chana Na Bhajia. Chana is a kind of lentils flour. Na Bhajia means the shape of the food which is kind of oval or in a blob.
- 4 medium potatoes
- 4 tablespoons chana flour
- salt and chilli pepper to taste
- about 1 cup of cold water

Heat a pot of oil on the stove.
|Season the chana flour with salt and chilli powder. Add in the cold water a little at a time until you get a batter which is not too thick or too thin.
|Peel the potatoes. Cut into thin slices. You may soak the cut potatoes in water to keep them from browning.
|Drain the sliced potatoes and add them into the chana batter. Make sure that every piece is coated with the batter.
|When the oil is hot, gently slide in the battered potatoes into the hot oil. Fry the potatoes in medium heat for a few minutes until they are golden brown.
|Remove the potatoes from the oil and drain them in a strainer. Pat the potatoes with paper towel to remove excess oil.
Zee gave a plate of the Indian fries to Nanzaro and Arkensen. They love it a lot. But, unfortunately, I still keep to my “no deep frying” in my kitchen.
