Indian Starters/Appetizers -Aloo Tuk Recipe

Aloo Tuk is a crispy, tasty appetizer, very apt as a starter in any party. These are spicy potatoes that are lightly pressed and deep fried. 

We are always in need of quick recipes for snacks that can be served in a jiffy when unexpected guests arrive or during parties.   One such recipe is Aloo Tuk.  It is so simple and yet so tasty that you can be sure that your guests would be demanding more and more and asking for the recipe from you!

• 8 Potatoes[Boiled] 
• 3 tsp Red chilli powder

1.  Cut the boiled potatoes into round shapes[not very thin]. Heat the oil and fry the potatoes until they are creamy in colour. See that you do not over fry them.  Place the fried potatoes on a kitchen tissue to absorb the excess oil from them.  Flatten them with your hands when they are cool.  Keep aside.

2.  Once again heat the oil and fry the potatoes until they are totally crisp on the outside and turn into a lovely golden brown in colour.  Place the fried potatoes again on a kitchen tissue to drain the excess oil from them.  

3.  Now you may flavour them with salt, mango powder, coriander powder, chilly powder.  Shake them well till the masala is evenly distributed.  

4.  Place on a serving dish and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.  

5.  The Aloo Tuks are now ready.  They taste great when they are served hot and crispy. A favourite for the entire family indeed!
