Aloo Bhujia

Bhujia is a savory snack. It is prepared using gram flour. It is thin, very crispy and crunchy.  Bhujia can be flavored in a number of ways. When the bhujia is flavored with potatoes it becomes aloo bhujia. It is a very popular snack in India. There are many brands making aloo bhujia. However, Haldiram aloo bhujia is my favorite in the lot. Potatoes not only give a distinct flavor to the namkeen but also add a lot to its texture. Alu bhujia is mildly spiced and therefore it has a dominant flavor of potatoes. It is relished by one and all; even kids like to munch it.

Aloo Bhujia Recipe- Ingredients required

Boiled Potatoes: Of course potatoes have been used to make alu bhujia. Boiled and grated potatoes are needed for this recipe. The quantity depends upon the quality of potatoes and the moisture therein. Basically I do not add water to make the dough for alu bhujia. Boiled and grated potatoes are used. These give the binding to the dough. So the quantity might vary.

Gram Flour (besan): Regular besan has been used to make aloo bhujia. For a crispier version you can replace 2 tbsp gram flour (besan) with 2 tbsp of rice flour (chawal ka atta).

Spices: In order to ensure that the flavor of potato speaks the most, many spices have not been added to make alu bhujia. Only red chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and salt have been used.

Oil: For frying!

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
