Colonialists have been generous in introducing some new vegetables and fruits into the Indian cuisine.
Potatoes were brought to India by the Portugese………and we made it our prime stock vegetable.
Aloo bhaja is a Bengali favorite ❤ What we say as,’ much-muche, kurkure aloo ‘ meaning crunchy and munchy potato fries.
Here’ what I did………..
3 nos – medium sized potatoes
1/2 tsp – tumeric powder
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
Peel the potatoes and slice them in roundels (preferably thin but unlike wafers). Now slice the roundels vertically like french fries but thinner.
Wash them thoroughly and season them with salt and tumeric. Keep aside for 10 mins. Heat the oil in a wok or a deep pan, fry the potatoes in batches until crisp (lightly golden brown). Spread it out on absorbent paper.
Serve hot with rice and other accompaniments.
Happy cooking !! 🙂
Cheers !! 😀
