Indore Famous Khopra Patties / Coconut Filled potatoe Fritters(gluten free and vegan)

Delightfully crispy fried goodness that you cannot stop eating. This is a very famous snack from Indore which is loved by everyone. This is an easy and quick recipe so lets get started.

Yield: 15 pieces.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

  • 4 medium sized boiled potatoes.
  • 1 cup of oat flour ( or you can substitute with breadcrumbs/rice flour.... To make oatmeal flour, finely grind one cup of instant oats )
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • Oil for frying
  • 2 tbsp of shredded coconut for the filling.
  • For serving, tamarind and mint chutney.


1. Boil 4 medium sized potatoes.

 2. Peel and grate the boiled potatoes.
( Tip..don't is important that you grate them which will insure they won't burst in oil)

3. Add 1 cup of oatmeal flour to the grated potatoes along with a tsp of salt.

4. Mix everything and make a dough. If the dough is sticky, add a little more oatmeal flour.

5. For the filling, take grated coconut. I added some finely chopped cashews, but this is optional.

6.  Take a small amount of the dough. Shape it into a ball and press it down as shown.

7. Into this, add 1/2 tsp of coconut filling. Do not overfill it, otherwise it might burst while frying.

8. Push the filling down while raising the edges making it into a ball shape. ( Just as you would for a stuffed paratha. )

9. Fry it on high heat until golden and crispy.

10. To enjoy its crispiness, serve hot. Enjoyed best with mint and tamarind chutneys.
