Aloo Pakora Recipe

Aloo Pakora

Aloo Pakora or Batata Bhajji has always been my favorite snack at home. Potato Pakoras is a wonderful snack dish to have, when you feel really something to enjoy in winters or monsoons. This Pakoda dish warm up your tea time with family and friends. Aloo Pakora are simply cooked with sliced potatoes and besan.

I generally make them at home and we enjoy either with evening tea or even sometimes with meal. My Aloo Pakode are always cooked soft and melts in mouth. You can feel crispy and golden potato slices in every bite. They are best to serve with coriander chutney and tamarind chutney.

Aloo pakora is also a street food snack in Mumbai, and you can get them in street vendors, where they sell vada pav, samosa and mix bhajiya. These hot pakoras sandwiched in pav (Indian buns), drizzled with green chutney, sweet chutney and garlic red chili chutney is the best choice to serve in front of your hubby, specially when he had come from office and feeling tired.

I made the aloo pakoras for evening snacks with tea, and tried to catch step by step images to show you well. Because I personally know that many people, especially folks who are new in cooking, do not get the proper texture and consistency of the batter for making pakoras. Frying is important here but the most important is that each potato slice has to be coated completely with the batter and the pakoras should puff up while frying. Thats an ideal aloo pakora. Hopefully, this step by step method will help you in making yummy, homemade Aloo Pakora. Lets start step by step recipe of making potato pakoras.
