INGREDIENTS FOR aloo 65 recipe

(1 CUP = 250 ML)
  • 4 to 5 medium sized potatoes (aloo)
  • 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour (atta) or you can use all purpose flour (maida)
  • 3 tablespoons corn flour
  • 7 to 8 curry leaves, chopped (kadi patta)
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder (lal mirch powder)
  • ½ teaspoon coriander powder (dhania 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

HOW TO MAKE aloo 65 recipe

  • 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.

    • you can use maida, rice flour, arrowroot flour and tapioca flour is most recipes that use corn flour, when its added to batter or sprinkled or dusted. in soups and gravies where corn flour is used for thickening, eg chinese food. here you can use arrowroot flour and tapioca flour. in this recipe you can use besan/gram flour also. the taste will be more like aloo pakoras.
