Alu Bhujia/Aloo Bhujia/Potato Sev

Aloo bhujia or alu bhujia are one of my favourite snacks i can munch anytime of the day.Most of us would have already tasted atleast once a while the famous Haldiram's aloo bhujias. These potato sev are seriously very easy to make with simple ingredients. These crunchy snack are almost like our omapodi but made with cooked and mashed potatoes, besan flour and with a simple spice powder.Bhujias have a distinct taste and texture since potatoes are used in this sev.

As i told earlier, this week's theme of blogging marathon is festive dishes with stepwise pictures. After a quick and easy breezy halwa, today's post is this crunchy munchy sev with potatoes. If you want something tasty and a different sev, give a try to make these addictive aloo bhujias.

2cups Gram flour
3nos Potatoes (medium sized & cooked)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1inch Cinnamon stick
2nos Cloves
1tsp Peppercorns
Oil for deep frying

Grate the cooked potatoes, mash it well.

Meanwhile take the cinnamon stick, cloves,peppercorns in a mixie jar, grind as fine powder.

Now take the mashed potatoes, spice powder,turmeric powder,salt and gram flour.
