Who can resist the combination of Crrrunchy crisp alu, pyaz and karela!
The ultimate accompaniment to a simple meal of Dal-Chawal or khichdi! Also great for a make ahead meal…as it stays good for several days! 🙂
Deep fry ready-to-make dry alu kutra, till they acquire light color, drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with salt, red chilli and amchoor while still hot.
Please resist the temptation to fry too much….they continue to cook in residual heat even after removing from oil. Over frying will make them bitter.

Aternatively you can use store bought alu kutra namkeen or make it from scratch.
This can be done by grating peeled potatoes using a thick grater.
