potato fry recipe

aloo fry is one of those dishes that you can easily prepare for a quick lunch or dinner option. you can have it with chapatis, bread, stuff in sandwiches or wraps or even serve as a side dish with dal-rice or even masala khichdi or khichdi recipe.

this aloo fry recipe is north indian style and thus has the north indian flavors in it. i do add some dry mango powder (amchur powder) for a slight tang. you can skip if you want and can also add some lemon juice.

while preparing potato fry, always use a well seasoned pan, so that the potatoes do not stick. i usually soak the potatoes in water to get rid of extra starch. but you can skip this step.

serve potato fry as a side dish with chapatis, bread or dal-rice or sambar-rice.
