Made with a dough of mashed potatoes, besan and rice flour, the Aloo Bhujia has a melt-in-the-mouth texture. It also has an awesome flavour, with the spiciness of garam masala and the exhilarating tang of dry mango powder. With a perfect blend of spices, this recipe gives you an authentic flavour just like what you get in the market. Enjoy it with a cup of hot tea.
