1. Nowadays, in Indian street food stall make this ‘dimer chop’ with chicken keema or mutton keema instead of potato, so if you want you can make this devil with keema, the taste becomes divine.
2. For this recipe, I use flour, breadcrumbs and faxed egg, if you don’t want these ingredients for coating, you can use this process –
➣ Take all the ingredients (1 Egg lightly beaten, All-purpose flour 4 tablespoons, Cornflour 4 tablespoons, Crushed peppercorns 1/2 teaspoon, Baking soda 1/2 teaspoon, Salt 1/2 teaspoon) take in a bowl, and mix well, add little water, like 1 tablespoon at a time to make a smooth batter.
➣ The batter should be smooth but thick like pancake batter. So add water as much as you want to make the batter.
