well as i was explaining earlier, aloo fry recipe is one generic recipe and there are myriad ways it can be prepared. each region and state of india has its own way to prepare this basic aloo fry. having said that, i have tried to accumulate the 3 most popular across all the regions. the first one is the classic south indian fry where the potatoes are fried with just oil and seasoned with salt and chilli powder later. this is the simplest out of all and carries the same texture as potato fries. the second one is very similar to the first one but has more spices like cumin and curry leaves. in addition, it is cooked by frying and steaming. the last one is the masaledar or spicy aloo fry recipe. this recipe is an ideal roti or chapati based side dish recipe. you may also serve it to rice and dal combo too.
