Pack Potatoes (Viazi Karai)

Pack potatoes are commonly known as Viazi Karai and are the most delicious snack sold at almost every corner at the Coast of Kenya. They are boiled and filled with a chili-sour paste, coated with a different type of tempura batter and deep fried. One just can’t have enough of these!



4-5 potatoes, boiled and cut into small pieces (2 inch)
1 cup gram flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
Salt to taste
Orange food colouring (optional)
3 tbsp oil, hot
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
Oil, for deep frying


Prepare a batter by mixing together gram flour, all purpose flour, salt, food colouring, hot oil and water. The batter shouldn't be too thick or too runny.
Mix together salt, chili powder and lemon juice in another bowl, make a small slit in the centre of the potatoes and fill with the paste.
Dip the potatoes into the batter and deep fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
