Uploaded by expertvillage on 22.01.2008

Hi this is Karen for Expert Village. Today I'll be showing you how to make three great

upon on how wet your batter is, a 1/4 teaspoon or 1/8 of a teaspoon of pepper, depending
on how peppery you like them, a teaspoon of salt and a 1/2 of teaspoon of baking powder.
You'll need some oil to fry them in, this is a Canola oil. Special equipment you might
want to use is a colander and something to drain it into. We'll also be grating our potatoes

with a hand grater if you like also and it will come out just as good. Okay, lets get
