For the second day under “Traditional Dishes” theme, my mom made these crunchy and delicious Potato Muruku. I already posted 2 muruku recipes, one with dalia and the other traditional recipe with rice and urad dal. Adding potato gives the muruku nice crunch and you can definitely taste the potato.

Mashed potato to Rice flour ratio should be 1:3. Make sure that the dough is not too thick or loose.
