How to make Aloo Bread Pakora Recipe

  1. To begin making the Aloo Bread Pakora Recipe, first we will make the Green Chutney. 

  2. Into a mixer grinder add the coriander leaves, mint leaves, curry leaves, roasted peanuts, lemon juice, sugar, salt to taste and water. Blend to make a smooth chutney. Transfer into a bowl and keep aside. 

  3. Next we will make the Potato filling. Into a large bowl add the boiled and mashed potatoes, onions, green chillis, red chili powder, turmeric powder,cumin powder, amchur powder, chaat masala, salt to taste and coriander leaves. Mix well to combine. Keep it aside.
