Crispy Potato Fry | Aloo Fry


Crispy Potato Fry is a nostalgic dish for me. It fetches ever living memories from my sweet childhood, my mother cooking me Crispy Potato Fry to pack in my tiffin box. I would never settle for any other dish. I was pampered and would never settle for anything else. Now long years have gone by. I have turned into an adult, married and a proud mother of a kid. Again, its the same Crispy Potato Fry that I turn into for my kid. This is a super easy and delicious recipe. Potatoes are handy, the only thing available with me any time of the week. The best thing about potatoes is that they last for longer time compared to other vegetables that rot fast and are not dependable. Potatoes are versatile and you can make a lot of dishes. You can cook, bake or even fry and my kid and family love it in any form. 

Aloo Fry is a terrific combo with plain rice and dal. Now as an adult also, I am a firm supporter of this combo. I love it with curd rice too. Sautéing for a long time in low flame renders a crispy outside and soft interior that I love so much. But you have to serve it hot otherwise it will be sort of soggy. As regarding nutrition, potatoes are rich in fiber and are naturally gluten free. You can reduce the chilly flavor if your kids feel it hot. Kids love this heavenly snack and you needn’t coax them into eating. They will ask for more and you will have to spare some extra for them. You can explore a well detailed Crispy Potato Fry recipe here that can be easily prepared at home. Enjoy the easy to prepare dish.
