PRAN Potata Spicy Biscuit – Everything You Need To Know

From price, packaging, to ingredients and taste, here’s all you need to know about the PRAN Potata spicy biscuits.

1. Ingredients

The main ingredients are – Refined wheat flour, Sugar, Palm oil, Potato paste, Seasoning powder (salt, chilli powder, garlic powder, sugar, citric acid, skimmed milk powder), Potato flakes, Tapioca starch, Invert sugar syrup, Whey protein, Salt, Mixed spices, Flavor enhancers and Emulsifiers. 

2. Taste

‘Potato biscuits’ do they have a classic biscuit taste or do they taste like potato chips? What about the oil used – Is it pungent or rancid? Does it affect the freshness? Does the seasoning mix leave an undesirable after-taste? Are the biscuits well-seasoned?

3. Texture

These disc-shaped biscuits fall between two categories. They are wafer-like thin but not as light. The density of each disc matches that of well-baked biscuits. 

4. Flavour

These are spicy flavored potato biscuits. Could we taste the potatoes? How well-proportioned was the spice mix? Was one element too bold or did all spices shine alike?

5. Crunch

Stacked in trays, PRAN Potata is essentially a hybrid between biscuits and potato chips. Would a biscuit with potato paste as the base have the signature bite? How pronounced is the crunch? 

6. Price

PRAN Potata spicy flavoured biscuits are priced at Rs 25 for a 100 gram pack.

In this section, we discuss what we liked and disliked about the product. 

A warm spice aroma enveloped the test kitchen as we opened the pack. 

These disc-shaped biscuits are stacked in a slotted plastic tray. In a 100 gram pack, you get around 35 pieces. Thickness and size, these discs were uniform throughout. We came across 2-3 pieces that were broken but this wasn’t an issue. PRAN Potata is sized a bit smaller than a regular cookie, but its thickness is somewhat similar to that of wafers. 

There is ample spice seasoning sprinkled on the discs that sticks to the fingertips. We were anticipating a crisp snack and that is exactly what we got! These potato biscuits tasted extremely fresh and had a prominent crunch. 

Taste-wise, this is a blend of sweet and savory with a hit of some garlic and spices. Though we couldn’t really taste the potato, the paste used adds a nice texture. All-in-all, the salt and sweet is balanced really well making this a decent addition to a grazing platter.
