Cuisine Hyderabadi
Course: Side Dish

Servings 3 to 4


  • 4 to 5 medium sized potatoes (aloo)
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour (atta) or you can use all purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons corn flour
  • 7 to 8 curry leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder (jeera powder), (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper powder
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 2 to 3 teaspoon ginger garlic paste or crushed ginger garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • few coriander or mint leaves for garnish
  • water as required
  • salt as required
  • oil for frying


  • Parboil the potatoes/aloos in a pressure cooker for 1-2 whistles.
  • Make a thick batter with all the ingredients except for oil and potatoes.
  • Peel and dice the parboiled potatoes.
  • Add the diced boiled potatoes to the batter.
  • Fry the batter coated potatoes in hot oil till golden brown & crisp.
  • Serve aloo 65 hot garnished with coriander or mint leaves or both along with some green chutney or tomato sauce.


  • I have not used red color as I avoid any artificial colors in the food I make at home. To get a deeper red color I suggest adding kashmiri red chili powder.
  • Don't make a thin batter as we want the potatoes to be coated well with the batter.
  • Don't cook the potatoes. They should just be parboiled. Just about 20% cooked so that they peel of easily and when dicing they don't get mashed up or crumble.
