Leats discuss how I make one of my evening wonderfull with aloo chop.

Preparation Time: 30 min
2-3 big potatos
1 big onion finely chopped
1 green chilly finely chopped
2 bread slices
1 tbsp raw jeera
Salt to taste
Sabji Masala (I used everest Sabji Masala)

For the batter:
1/2 cup of flour
Salt to taste
1/2 tbsp Jeera powder
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tbsp chilli powder
1/2 baking powder

How to cook:
First of all we will cut the potatoes in small pieces and put in cooker to boil. By the time we will prepare bread crumbs with 2 slices of bread.

We will also prepare the batter. mix all the ingredients and make a light batter, not thick.

Now after 3-4 whistels, we will take out the potatoes in a bowl. Now in a pan heat oil and add raw jeera.Add the chopped onions and chilis to it. Add little bit salt and stir well. Our intension is to mix everyting well.

So in a high flame cook the onions. Now add Sabji masala and stir for 1/2 min. Now add the boiled potatoes and stir coarsely. By the time you can add little salt and sugar. Gradually you ll notice that everything will mashed in the pan and mixed well.

Now we can put the flame off and make the potato dough to cool down.Now make small round balls with the potato dough.

Heat oil in another pan for deep frying. When the oil is hot, be ready with your balls.

Take one potato ball dip it into the batter and then into the bread crumbs to cover the batter and then put into the hot oil. This way finish all the balls. Fry them in low heat as the bread crumbs might overcooked in high flame.

Serve hot with salad/onions or sauce. Enjoy.
