Today, I am sharing a very simple and easy diwali snack potato sev recipe with step by step detailed pics. It is similar to the plain sev / omapodi but little thicker than it. The addition of cooked potato and chat masala adds an extra taste and zing to the snack. If you are little bit hesitant to make swirls in Thenkuzhal or Maida murukku, then this is a no mess recipe. Try this Haldiram style aloo bhujia and you surely love it.

1. Potato should be pressure cooked well, so it will be easy for grinding, mashing or grating.
2. Chilli powder can be replaced with green chilli, grind it along with potato.
3. For more flavour few mint leaves can be added, if using grind it with potato.
4. For tangy taste, little amchur powder can be used for this potato sev recipe.
5. Adjust chilli and pepper powder as per spice level preferred.
6. If the dough is dry, it will be hard to press. So sprinkle little water, knead again and use it.
7. If the dough is sticky, the sev absorbs more oil. Add little more besan flour and mix again.
8. Be alert when adding water, as the grinded potato also ,has extra water in it.
9. Don’t make this aloo bhujia recipe in hot fuming oil as the sev becomes brown and taste bitter.
10. Oil gets absorbed by time, so pour enough oil and fry again.
11. Sprinkling chat masala at last is optional only, but it gives an extra zing to the snack.
