aloo laccha pakora recipe aloo laccha pakora recipe | crispy potato lachha pakoda | aloo pakoda with detailed photo and video recipe. pakoda or any deep-fried snacks are not new to indian cuisine. it is widely made across india for different purposes and for myriad occasions. but lately, the trend is gradually changing and many prefer to have crispier and flaky snacks. one such popular and simple pakoda recipe aloo laccha pakora recipe known for its crispiness and flakiness made with potato grate.

in my previous post of lachha cabbage pakora, i did receive a warm response and more importantly, i was asked to prepare something similar with potato grate too. therefore, this post is just fulfilling that request. as matter of fact, i have prepared very similar to it. starting from the grating of the potatoes, and with the addition of spices and flour are very simple. yet these 2 recipes are completely different. particularly the taste is very different. for instance, the potato is loaded with starch in it and hence it makes it more filling. whereas, the cabbage is more crunchy and crispy as it has a more flat surface.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the crispy potato lachha pakoda. firstly, i would heavily recommend using the same potatoes used to make french fries or chips. these are generally less in starch content and hence tend to become crispier after it is deep-fried. secondly, i have shared a simple and easy chutney or dip particularly specific for this snack. yet you may skip it and serve these with any store-bought sauce, dip or chutney. lastly, before mixing spices and flour, make sure the potato grate is completely dry and do not have any moisture. otherwise, the potato pakora may not turn flaky and lacchedar.
