Make a batter with the gram flour, fresh coriander, green chillies, cumin, fennel, baking powder and salt. Add water a little at a time. The batter should be neither too thick nor too thin. It should coat the sliced roots well. Taste for salt.
Heat a karahi half filled with peanut oil. When very hot, lower the flame a little and add small batches of root slices covered in batter. Fry till golden red.
Serve with sweet and hot tamarind chutney.
