Sindhi aloo tuk recipe with step by step photos – aloo tuk is a popular sindhi snack of crispy, fried and spiced potato slices.

I remember having aloo tuk for the first time in kailash parbat restaurant in Mumbai. They had done it very well. The aloos were fried to perfection with the correct amount of spices added to them. By the way kailash parbat restaurants specialize in sindhi cuisine. I searched on the internet for making aloo took or aloo tuk. I got this recipe from sulekha.com. I made some modification to it by adding turmeric and cumin seeds powder.
