Aloo pakora is a common street food found all over India and Pakistan and they are certainly one of my favourite appetisers to make. Not only because they are so simple to make, but because they taste so good!
My aloo pakora recipe uses minimal ingredients, but I make sure that my recipes NEVER compromise on flavour. The best thing about this potato recipe is that you can whip up a batch whenever you feel like it.
It doesn’t take much time and all you need to do is cut up a few potatoes and mix the spices, dip them into the batter, and fry. There you have it! Your golden slices of potato perfection.
I always have to make a large batch because my husband and kids love these (almost!) as much as I do, so I know there will always be arguments as to who gets the most.
As the batter does not require any resting or marination this potato pakora recipe is incredibly quick to make.
It is very important that you only make the batter immediately prior to frying and add the potatoes as soon as you are going to fry.
Otherwise, the batter will end up becoming runny and it will be difficult to fry the potatoes. If this does occur then add some gram flour to thicken the batter again.
There are so many types of potatoes out there and you can really be spoilt for choice, but my go-to for this aloo pakora 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 these aloo pakoras are a recipe that you have to try.
These aloo pakora, otherwise known as potato fritters, are so simple to make yet delicious to taste. Aloo pakora are savoury delights that can be made with the most basic of ingredients and require absolutely no expertise in cooking. Guaranteed to be a universal favourite.
