Aloo ki bhujia

Comments : 27 Posted in : Bihari Bhujia on by : Sonali Tags: , , , , ,

Several times I have banged my head trying to teach this recipe to my cook when I used to live with my friends in college. No matter Whatever I tell him, he used to put all other spices & happily tell me that it was exactly the way I told him.He has just added chilli or so.

Its a simple one which goes well with morning breakfast(parantha or roti) or you can try as a side vegetable during lunch or dinner.
U will need: 4-5 same size potatoes, 1 tspn turmeric powder, 2 green chillies, 1 tspn jeera, 11/2 tbspn oil, salt.
Wash n cut the potatoes as shown in pic. they are similar to finger chips. Wash n keep aside. cut chilli lenghtwise.Heat kadai well. Add oil. Add jeera n chilli. Add potatoes. Stir for 2-3 minutes. Cover it N cook for 1 minute. Add turmeric powder. Add salt. Again cover it n cook for next 2-3 minutes. Repeat the process if not cooked. Garama-garam bhujia is ready to serve.
Tip of the day: While cutting potatoes, keep them in water, else they will turn blackish. You can peel off the potatoes if you want.

    Hi, I'm originally from Karachi, Pakistan, but grandparents and parents are from Bihar. As a kid I really disliked this bhujia, but now as an adult I'm grateful for the simple, yet tasty, Bihari dishes.

    Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

    Its good that you have put recipies of simple dishes. Good for the people who are learning to cook simple homemade Bihari dishes.

    A bit different in my home…
    Same bhujiya with a pinch of twist..
    As prevelent..in bihar & bengal..
    Pachpodhan..(blend of five spices~ jeera,sarson/rai,methi,saunf & kalaunji/mangrail) as we call it..is used instead of just jeera in preferebly mustard oil instead of vegetable/refined oil.
    These two gives an extra kick together..
    In place of green chilli…red chill is used.
    Whole cloves of garlic plus chilli are used as a paste after grinding together on stone..the paste must not be very fine..
    Add this paste along with termeric with potatos…
    Cook this in a bit extra oil on high flame..stir continously until the potato takes thegolden colour…bring the flame down to minimum…add salt..&…cover it for 8-10 minutes..yr crispy aaloo-bhujiya…is done.
    Serve hot…i love this..yummy.

    What oil should we use? Mustard oil or any oil?

    • September 18, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      Hey…I use mustard oil…it makes it more crispier ..I guess..
      But other cooking oil works as well.. I have tried them.

      Yes dear, definitely.

      Yes, You Can. The only thing you have to keep in mind is to cut Gobhi pieces inline with Potatoes.
