About Spicy Aloo Bhujia

It is raining heavily in Nashik and the weather has become perfect to relish these home-cooked yummy snacks, sitting near the window with a cup of hot tea. I like to enjoy it as is, but some times I like to sprinkle some chaat masala, lemon juice and chopped onions over the freshly prepared Aloo Bhujias and toss everything together, it tastes just lip smacking😋 Aloo Bhujias or Sev are spicy deep fried snacks made from mixture of potatoes, besan and spices. These can be had as snacks at any time of the day and can be packed as a short snack box for kids school. You can make these in big quanitity and store for over a month or so. PS: I am on diet, and I get cravings to eat fried items somedays, so I prefer to make any such snacks in a small batches at home and enjoying a little; instead of buying readily available snacks. If I buy from market I will tend to buy more often. If I prepare it myself, I get satisfied with very little also😋😊
