Aalo Bhajia Recipe

Potatoes (aaloo) are just about everyone’s favourite vegetable in India. They are very versatile, and can be used in curries, fried snacks, etc. Aaloo bhajias are crispy, fried delicious snacks served with chutney. In this recipe, I have used multiple flours to prepare the bhajia batter. A combination of gram flour (besan), rice flour (chawal ka atta), semolina (suji) and corn flour has been used. Thinly sliced potatoes are alternatively soaked in hot water followed by ice cold water. Different spices are added to the bhajia batter .Turmeric powder (haldi) provides a nice yellow colour, while red chilli powder (lal mirch) gives a spicy touch. The potato slices are completely drained and coated with the batter. The mixture should be thin and should stick to the potatoes. These slices covered with batter are then tossed into a large wok heated with oil. They are deep-fried until they attain perfect golden-brown colour. The extra oil can be drained by using kitchen paper towels. These aaloo bhajias brighten up any rainy day and when served hot with chutney, leave you asking for more.
