This aloo katli recipe is made with slices of potatoes deep-fried until golden browned then sauteed along with some whole spices, powdered spices, and then lathered in tomato ketchup.

This aloo katli recipe is a simple, quick, and crispy potato recipe. Serve this Indian recipe with a side of chapatti, paratha, or even along with some boiled rice.

Prepared with simple spices and fried potatoes, this potato snack recipe is one to try.

This aloo ki katli recipe is prepared in just 30 minutes and is perfect for when you get those unannounced guests at the door.

Serve this potato katli recipe as a tasty appetizer that will be loved by vegetarians and meat-lovers alike.

Potatoes are one of those things that basically taste good in any shape or form whether it is an aloo tikki or in form of a potato curry or this yummy aloo katli.

There are so many types of potatoes out there and you can really be spoilt for choice, but my go-to for this aloo recipe usually is red potatoes.

With that being said there are other potatoes you can use such as Maris piper potatoes or King Edward potatoes. Both these potato varieties are common in the UK and are widely produced.

If you live in the US or other parts of the world where you can’t find these potatoes a great alternative is Russet potatoes. No matter which potatoes you use this aloo ki katli is a recipe that you must try.

This is quite a spicy recipe, so if you are not much of a spices person then you can reduce the number of chilli flakes. Instead of using a teaspoon add a half instead.

With the potato skins, it is up to personal preference whether you want to remove them or not. Depending on how I am feeling I may remove them.

Sometimes I keep them on. There are lots of benefits to potato skins, so keeping them on is always a good idea!

To make this recipe healthy you can bake the potato slices instead of frying them. I have baked them before, and it is possible.

Brush the potato slices with some oil then bake at the top of a preheated oven at 230°C/445°F/gas mark 8 for 40-45 minutes, flipping over halfway.
