Aloo Chop recipe | Potato Ball fries.

Aloo Chop recipe | Potato Ball fries.

This is a slight variation of the bread roll recipe. Its called an Aloo Chop recipe. In this recipe we will use rice flour of using a bread slice to cover the potato mixture. As mentioned in the earlier post for a Bread Roll Recipe this was a staple diet in our school canteens. I got worried about my kid getting sick from eating outside food. So, I started making them at home. This was a variation I tried with good success from time to time.

Today i am going to show how how to cook up a tasty and indulgent snack in minutes from simple ingredients you have in your kitchen. It does not matter which culture you belong, this is one item that will resonate with everyone.

While it’s an easy recipe to cook, let me warn you. This is a recipe for the taste buds. It’s very high in calories. It’s a great lazy saturday or sunday evening snack. It goes well with drinks and can be an occasional snack for kids.

So let’s get this sinful treat made.

While i have made a potato based filling one can also use lots of veggies if you want this to be a little healthier. Cottage cheese / tofu can also be used. In case your diet involves meat and eggs you can use grated (keema) chicken or you can mash the boiled eggs with the potatoes.. But make sure you have enough potato to make sure you can shape it well.
