aloo pakora recipe

the recipe for aloo pakora is very simple, yet some suggestions and recommendations for it. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use slicer to thinly slice the peeled potatoes. alternatively you can use sharp knife to slice it thinly with extra care. moreover do not forget to wash it with cold water to remove excess starch from potatoes. secondly, i have added chaat masala to the besan batter for the extra zing or chatpata taste. but it is only optional and you can replace it with garam masala + aamchur powder too. finally baking soda is purely optional and is added for the extra puffiness.
