Place the potatoes in a pot and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes.
Bring the water to a boil and boil the potatoes until tender.
Drain the potatoes and smash each potato with a spatula, until flattened.
Place the oil in a stockpot and heat the oil until hot. Fry the potatoes on each side until golden and crispy. (See notes 1.)
Drain the deep fried potatoes on a paper towel lined plate and season with salt, red chili powder and amchur (if using) while still hot.
- For extra crispy deep fried potatoes, drain the potatoes and fry them a second time.
