aloo tuk recipe

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.

Now coming back to the aloo tuk recipe…. This dish is easy to prepare and can be served as a snack or a side dish. Will go well with a cup of hot Ginger tea as well. Kids will love them.

Aloo tuk tastes delicious and is an ideal snack to make during monsoon. If you love aloo then you should surely try this recipe.
