About Aloo Pakora

Aloo pakora or Potato Pakora, or Potato Fritters is a famous Indian snack that is crispy, delicious, and so simple to make. This deep-fried snack is prepared with a spicy gram flour and rice flour batter, sliced potatoes, and herbs.

Aloo Pakora or Aloo Pakoda is a North Indian name for this dish, but it is also known as Aloo Bhajiya, Aalu Bajji, Aloo Bajji, or Potato Bhajiya in other parts of India.  

This Aalu Pakoda recipe is amazingly easy to follow and requires only a few basic ingredients that are easily available in most of the Indian kitchens.

To make a crispy aloo ke pakore, it is important that the potatoes are sliced thinly and evenly. If the potatoes are super thick, they will not cook properly, if they are super thin, they will almost melt while frying.

Also, the batter should be semi-thick and lump-free, and well-mixed with spices like carom seeds, turmeric, chili powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, and asafetida. These spices not only enhance the flavor of the potato pakoda, but also make them more aromatic and inviting.

Aalu Pakora are usually served  as a tea-time snack or as a street food item along with mint chutney, tamarind chutney, ketchup, or even with plain or sweetened yogurt.  Basically, these pakora can be served with different chutneys and dips. A sprinkle of chaat masala and red chili powder right before serving makes these aalu pakoras extra special and more flavorful.

Most of the pakoras are prepared using a batter made with gram flour, or besan, which is a staple ingredient in Indian cuisine. However, with Potato Pakora, you also need to add a bit of rice flour to make the pakoras crispy.

A pinch of baking soda is added to the batter to make the pakoras fluffy and light.

To make these potato pakoras crispy, it is essential to deep-fry them in hot oil over medium until they turn golden brown from all the sides. Once the pakoras are fried, they should be drained on a paper towel to remove excess oil.

Also, these pakoras should be fried in batches to make sure that they do not stick to each other.

I have tried making the aloo pakora in an air-fryer but did not really like the texture much. It is because the batter spreads while air-frying leaving the batter less potato slice. However, if you are health conscious, or looking for a healthier alternative to deep-fried pakoras, you can also make aloo pakoda in an air fryer. I have given the instructions on this page here.

Just like any other pakora, you can also make it using an air-fryer or with different vegetables such as onions, spinach, or cauliflower. These similar pakora variations are equally delightful and offer a healthy twist to the traditional aloo pakora recipe.

Just like samosa, it is one of such snacks that are quick, easy, and perfect for any occasion. Make these Indian potato fritters for the weekend get-together, parties, other occasions, or make them as a tea-time snack to enjoy with family and friends. No matter how you are planning to serve, they will always be a hit that you will want to make it repeatedly.

Aloo Pakora Ingredients

Aloo pakoda is a simple yet flavorful snack recipe that can be made anytime of the day because of the easy accessibility of the handful of ingredients. All the ingredients used in this recipe are easily available in Indian kitchens.

Here are the ingredients used in this recipe:  

  • Potatoes (Aloo): This is the main ingredient of potato pakora recipe. You can use both silky flour potatoes for making this pakora recipe. I prefer using flour potatoes as they hold up batter so well.

To make crispy and delicious pakoras, the potatoes can either be sliced or cut into thin strips before dipping into the batter.

  • Gram flour (Besan): Gram flour, besan or chickpea flour is the star ingredient of any pakora recipe. This flour is used to make the batter that coats the potatoes. The besan batter gives the pakoras a crispy texture and a nutty flavor.

  • Rice flour: It is an optional ingredient that is added to the besan batter to make the pakoras crispy. It is also a gluten-free flour, so it is a great option for those who are gluten intolerant.

  • Powdered Spices: Aloo Pakoda batter requires a variety of spices to give them a distinct flavor and taste. I have added the commonly used spices such as turmeric powder, chili powder, chaat masala powder, and cumin powder. Asafoetida is also added to the batter for flavor.

If you want to make these pakoras gluten-free you can omit adding asafoetida or use gluten-free asafetida.

  • Carom seeds (Ajwain): They are added to the batter to enhance the flavor of the pakoras, and they also aid in digestion.

  • Cumin seeds: They add lovely aromatic taste and texture to these pakoras.

  • Baking soda: A small amount of baking soda is added to the batter. Adding baking soda right before frying the pakoras makes them crispy from the outside, light and airy.

  • Ginger-garlic paste: Adding ginger garlic paste to the pakora batter makes them so aromatic. But if you want to make no onion garlic pakoras, then replace ginger-garlic paste with 1 teaspoon finely chopped or minced ginger.

  • Oil: It is used to deep-fry the pakoras. You can use any frying oil or vegetable oil that has a high smoke point like peanut oil, canola oil, or sunflower oil.

  • Water: You will need water to create a smooth consistency batter.  

  • Salt: You can use any of your favorite salt in this recipe. Add it according to your taste preference.

  • Optional ingredients: You will also need some Kasuri methi, or fresh coriander leaves. These ingredients are added to the batter to elevate the flavor of the pakoras. Adding these ingredients is optional, so you can skip them if you do not have them.

Aloo Pakora Variations

All the pakora recipes are versatile and can be customized with different vegetables and spices. It’s the same with potato pakora. You can add different vegetables and spices to the batter to create different variations of the classic aloo pakoda recipe.

Here are some popular variations of Potato Pakora (Aloo Pakora) recipe:

  • Onion Aloo Pakora: To make aloo pyaaz pakora, mix the dry batter ingredients. Add sliced onions and sliced potatoes to the flour mixture. Massage the mixture with your hand, add a little water to form a thick mixture.

Deep fry the onion potato pakoda or potato fritters, the addition of onions add a sweet and tangy flavor to the pakoras and make them more flavorful.

  • Palak Aloo Pakoda: To make aloo palak pakora, you can either add chopped potato and chopped palak or spinach to the batter and fry. Or layer sliced potato with spinach leaf and dip it into the batter and deep fry. Spinach not only adds a vibrant green color to the pakoras but also makes them crisper and more nutritious.

  • Aloo Methi Pakora: To make them more wholesome, add chopped Methi (Fenugreek leaves) to the batter. Then dip sliced potatoes in this batter and fry. This addition of methi adds a bitter-sweet flavor to the pakoras and gives them a unique taste.

  • Corn Aloo Pakora: You can also add sweet corn kernels or sliced baby corn to the batter along with sliced potatoes. The corn adds a mild-sweet flavor to the pakoras and makes them more filling.

  • Moong Dal Potato Pakora: In this type of variation, you add moong dal paste to the besan batter. To make this pakora, soak Moong dal or split gram green overnight and pulse into a coarse paste. This paste is then added to the batter.

Potatoes can either be dipped in the batter and fried, or you can add chopped potatoes to the batter before frying.

  • Paneer Aloo Pakora: Chop paneer (Indian cottage cheese) and potatoes, add the batter and fry. Paneer adds a lovely, creamy, and rich flavor to the pakoras. It is a delight for Paneer Pakora and Aloo Pakoda lovers.

  • Cheese Potato Pakoda: To add a gooey-cheesy flavor and to make them more indulgent, you can add grated cheese or cheese cubes to the batter along with the potatoes. You can use any cheese of your choice.

I prefer using mozzarella or cheddar cheese as they melt well and add a lovely flavor to the pakoras.

Serving Suggestions

Potato fritters can be served and eaten in numerous ways. Here we have some serving suggestions for aloo ke pakore:

You can serve them as a snack with a hot cup of tea, coffee, or even with a chilled glass of mango lassi. They are also a wonderful option for a quick weekend breakfast or brunch. These pakoras are also a lovely dish when served as a starter/appetizer for meals.

To serve, sprinkle some chat masala over the pakoras for added flavor. Serve hot and crispy pakodas with coriander chutney, garlic chutney, or yogurt as dipping sauces.

Storage Suggestions

Aalu pakoras taste the best when enjoyed fresh and hot straight out of the pan. However, if you have some leftovers then you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.  

When you are ready to eat, reheat the pakoras in an oven or air-fryer. Simply preheat the oven or air fryer to 350°F (180°C) and place the pakoras on a baking sheet or air fryer basket. Bake or air fry for13-15 minutes until hot and crispy.

Alternatively, you can reheat the pakoras in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. But this way the pakoras will not be as crispy as they were when they were fresh.

Freezing option: These delicious aalu pakoras can also be frozen for later use. To freeze, let them cool completely. Once cooled, transfer them to a parchment paper lined baking sheet in a single layer and freeze for 3-4 hours or until frozen.

Remove them from the baking sheet and place in an airtight container or a freezer safe bag and freeze for up to 2 months. When ready to eat, reheat them in the oven or air fryer or oven until hot and crispy.

Baked Aloo Pakora

If you do not have an air fryer and you still want to eat the healthy version of potato pakora, you can bake them in the oven.  

To bake, preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking tray with the parchment paper and keep it aside.  

Slice the potatoes thinly and coat them with the batter. Place the coated potato slices on the prepared baking tray in a single layer and spray with some oil. Bake for about 12 minutes. Once done, flip the pakoras and bake for 7-8 more minutes or until golden and crisp.

Serve baked aloo bhajiya hot with any chutney of your choice.

Air Fried Aloo Pakora

To make aloo bhajiya in an air fryer, make the besan batter as per recipe instructions, but keep it slightly thick. It is because the batter spreads while aor-frying, so keeping it a bit thick prevents it from spreading while air-frying.

Preheat the air fryer to 360°F (180°C). Slice the potatoes thinly and coat them with the batter. Line the air-fryer with perforated parchment paper and arrange the pakoras in a single layer.  

Spray pakoras with cooking oil and air fry for 6-7 minutes, flip and air fry again for 5 minutes or until they turn crispy and golden brown. Air fryer pakoras are ready to serve!  

Leftover Aloo Pakora

There are many different ways you can repurpose and use leftover aloo bhajiya to create new and exciting dishes. Here are some amazing ideas:

  • Aloo Pakora Sandwich: You can use the leftover Potato pakoras as a filling for a sandwich along with some onion, tomatoes, cucumber, chutney, ketchup, seasonings of your choice and cheese. Toast the sandwich until the cheese melts and the bread is crispy.

To reheat, arrange leftover pakoras in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking tray. Bake at 350°F or 175°C for about 15 minutes, or until crispy. Place reheated pakoras on a serving plate. Top with boiled chickpeas, boiled and sliced potatoes. Pour some chilled yogurt over the pakoras. Drizzle with a generous amount of tamarind chutney and mint coriander chutney. Sprinkle some chopped onions, pomegranate arils, chaat masala powder, red chili powder, and black salt. Top with chopped cilantro, sev, and namkeen mixture. Serve it immediately with a cup of chai or coffee!

Pro tips and tricks to make best Aloo Pakora

  1. Potatoes: Any floury potatoes that have a high starch content works best for this pakora recipe. For this recipe you can use russet, yellow, yukon gold or like or even red potatoes. Make sure that you don’t use silky potatoes here to avoid the gluey gummy texture.  

  2. Slicing: Make thin and even slices using a sharp knife, but don’t use a mandolin to slice the potatoes and they will make too thin slices and the potatoes will become crispy rather than soft from the inside. We want pakoras which are crisp on the outside and melt-in-the-mouth from the inside.

  3. Use besan and rice flour: Using a combination of besan and rice flour helps to make the pakoras crispy.

  4. Don’t overmix the batter: This pakora batter should not be overmixed after adding baking soda. Over Mixing the batter can make it tough and result in heavy pakoras. Mix the batter lightly and only until well.

  5. Batter: Pakora batter should neither be too thin, nor too thick. If your batter is thin, it will absorb so much oil and the pakoras will become too oily. Or if your batter is too thick, it would give the pakoras a lumpy doughy texture and we certainly don’t want that. We would need a medium thick consistency batter to coat the potatoes.

  6. Use chilled water: Use chilled water to make the batter for aloo pakoras. The cold water helps to make the batter light and crispy.

  7. Add baking soda: Adding a pinch of baking soda to the batter helps to make the pakoras airy and fluffy. It also helps to make the pakoras crispy and crunchy, but adding baking soda is entirely optional.

  8. Flavors: To flavor the aloo pakoda batter, you can add some finely chopped green chilies, mint leaves, or curry leaves. You can also add some finely chopped onions to the pakora batter.

  9. Oil: For frying pakoras, you can either use frying oil, or you can use any neutral flavored oil: sunflower oil, canola oil, grape seed oil, or peanut oil. Some people like to use mustard oil also, but I avoid it because mustard has such a strong flavor that it overpowers all the other flavors of pakoras.

  10. Use medium heat: The oil temperature is especially important for making crispy pakoras. Heat the oil over medium heat for even cooking and to prevent the pakoras from burning. If the oil is too hot, the pakoras will burn from the outside and remain uncooked from the inside. If the oil is too cold, the pakoras will absorb too much oil and will become soggy and greasy. So, make sure to heat the oil to the right temperature before frying the pakoras.  

  11. Oil temperature: To test the temperature of the oil, pour a few drops of pakora batter into the hot oil. If the batter comes up too quickly the oil is extremely hot, so you need to lower the heat and let it cool a bit before frying. If the batter does not come up or comes up very slowly, the oil is cold, you need to heat it up more. With the perfect oil temperature, the batter would come up quickly but steadily.

  12. Drain excess oil: To remove excess oil, use a slotted spoon to remove the pakoras from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate.

  13. Serve hot: The key rule for the best texture and best tasting pakoras is to serve the potato pakoras hot and crispy for the best taste and texture.  

  14. Reheat: If you want to reheat the pakoras, you can reheat them in an oven or air fryer. To reheat, arrange leftover pakoras in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking tray. Bake at 350°F or 175°C for about 15 minutes, or until crispy.
