The most awaited and brightest festival of Indians, the one and only Diwali is on halfway to end. Like the way it does every year, our lives were filled with cheer, laughter, joy and great food which is cherished as memory in the year to come. Our home came alive with flickering of Diyas at every nook and corner denoting the hope for something best to come.
We could even burst few basic firecrackers here within closed walls which is why we don’t miss any joy that the festival brings along. We had a nice get together with few Indian families who cooked few of their recipes that they mastered and every one relished it tummy full.
The aloo bhujia recipe has been there in my drafts since almost 10 months and I think diwali would be no better time to post the same. My little one who is bit fussy to choose his food loves aloo bhujia the most and always demands it during our visits to Mall. I prepare the bhujia and stock it for him to snack on while lazying around. Like the plain sev, aloo bhujia too has gram flour and spices but few additions being potato, mint and chat masala.
I have ground boiled potato with mint leaves but you can even grate it or mash. You can take the liberty of replacing mint leaves with mint powder though I highly recommend using chat masala powder which should overpower other spices ideally.
