Potato doughnut is a tasty and spicy evening snack. It is easy to prepare too. Doughnuts are prepared basically with maida.But I have tried this  with some leftover home made breadcrumbs instead of maida, with potatoes, onions and our spicy garam masala powders.

Breadcrumbs                          - from 8 to 10 slices of breads
Potatoes (large)                     - 2 nos
Onion                                      - 1 medium size (chopped finely)

Ginger                                                 - 1/2 inch piece
Garlic                                      - 3 nos
Aamchoor powder                 - ½ tsp
Turmeric powder                   - ¼ tsp
Chilli powder                          - 1 tsp

Garam Masala Powder         - 1 tsp
Pav baji masala powder        - 1 tsp

Salt                                          - to taste
oil                                            - for deep frying

Peel the skin from the potatoes and boil it with garlic and ginger.
In a bowl add bread crumbs, finely chopped onions,salt, chilli powder, pav baji masala powder, garam masala powder and mix well.
Mash the boiled potatoes, garlic and ginger well and add it to the bread crumbs mixture,
Mix well till all the ingredients  get incorporated.(If needed sprinkle some water).
Shape the mixture into balls and flatten it slightly and with the doughnut cutter press it. then you will get the shape of doughnut and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and gently slide the  potato doughnuts into the hot oil and deep fry till golden colour in a medium flame.
Drain it in a colander and the Potato doughnuts are ready to serve.
Serve hot with tomato ketchup.

If you don’t have doughnut cutter, flatten the potato balls slightly make a hole in the centre or shape it like a ball and deep fry it till golden colour.
