Navratri Special- Aloo Pancake

The classic latke (Potato Pancake) is made with little more than grated potatoes and onions, with egg and flour for binding. Here, is my little attempt at making kind of similar dish but this is completely falahari. It tastes amazing and is a great snack for those who are fasting for Navraatri. Serve it with chutney of your choice and enjoy!
Potato : 4-5 (medium sized)
Green Chilli : 4-5 (optional)
Coriander Leaves : a handful
Roasted Peanut : 2 tbsp (powdered)
Falahari Flour : 4-5 tbsp (any fast friendly flour)
Curd : 2 tbsp
Salt, black pepper : as per taste
Ghee : for frying
• Peel and grate potatoes and soak them in cold water in order to avoid oxidation.
• Grind roasted peanuts in a blender to make fine powder.
• In a bowl, add curd, spices, chillies and coriander.
• Squeeze water out of potato using hand.
• Add squeezed potato, falahari aata (here you can use any of the flour, I have used Singhada Aata) , powdered peanut.
• Mix it all well.
• Now take a tava, heat it, and grease with ghee.
• Make small pancakes with the potato batter and place them gently on the hot tava.
• Cook the pancakes evenly from both the sides, add a little ghee to make them crispy.
• Serve these hot with a cup of tea and chutney of your choice.
