Aloo Sev Bhujia Namkeen – Potato Besan Noodles – a popular crisp savory snack made from mashed potatoes, chickpea flour and spices. Eat a spoonful of aloo bhujia, and you will want to upturn the whole bag into your mouth.
It is a must make during festivals or during meet ups, and is served with Murukku, Chivda Namkeen, and other dry snacks. It can also be enjoyed as an evening snack with a hot cup of tea. Nowadays this snack is being increasingly bought from stores, and while they are good, it is fun to make this dish from scratch at the comfort of your home. Apart from this, you can keep a tab on the quality of ingredients used to make this dish and make sure no unwanted stuff is added in it.
Also, Aloo Bhujia can be served along with Aloo Poha and the combination tastes yummy as well! I even pack Aloo Bhujia for my kid’s lunch box and as an accompaniment, as well. Here’s a very easy way to make Aloo Bhujia Sev Recipe.
