Potato Bullets

Potato Bullets/Aloo Bullets/Potato Starter

Hello all, today I’m going to share a Shallow fry Potato Bullets/Aloo Bullets snack or starter recipe which can be served with green chutney or sweet chutney or simply tomato ketchup.

Potato is a root vegetable and starchy. These are cooked quickly for any curry base.

N number of dishes are made with potato-like Kurma, Curry, Mixed Veg Curry, Potato fry, Aloo Bonda yum…and the list goes on and on.

Potato fry is my all-time favourite dish and made often at home. Potatoes are great for binding. Mashed potatoes and stir-fry beans is a good combination.

This recipe made with any root vegetable will be yummy.
