Aloo ke Bhajiye (Potato Pakora)

It is very well known snack… in every street of Gujarat… in every household of a Gujarati…  One just cannot go wrong in serving these delicious looking, flavorful, tiny little potato snacks – aloo ke bhajiye.

I moved to US when I was 15, so I never had a luxury to get on bike when it rains and go to a local cart on the roadside and eat these bhajiyas with chai. Though, my dear hubby has been/was very lucky until about 5 years when I married him and took him away to this dreadful cold country where when it snows/rains the only thing you want to do it cuddle up under a blanket and take long long long naps… J

However, you can still make these at home and be sure that the batter is not adulterated and the potatoes are clean and fresh, unlike the roadside carts; and still enjoy it with some coffee instead of Chai.

  1. One big potatoes – thinly sliced in round shape
  2. Batter – half a cup chickpea flour, one tblsp red chili powder, one tblsp coriander powder, a pinch of turmeric powder, few drops of lemon juice, and salt per taste, and some warm water.
  3.  Oil for deep frying

  1. Make a thick runny batter from all the ingredients listed under batter.
  2. Heat oil for deep frying.
  3. Dip one slice of potato in the batter, so that it is fully covered in batter, drop it in hot oil and fry till golden brown.
  4. Repeat this process for all potatoes.
  5. You can fry multiple potatoes at one time.
  6. Serve hot with ketchup and chai or coffee J
