Here is the epic combination from the Bihar, “Aaloo Bhujia (dry potato dish)” and kachori; In this recipe nothing is fancy just a pinch of culture and custom from Bihar, they use to serve just a bowl of “Sooji Halwa” (Rava/semolina), Kachori and “Aaloo Bhujia (dry potato dish)” whenever guest visited.
It gave unique feelings of happiness to me when I cooked this recipe because these potatoes were grown in pot in our balcony, planting and growing skill of my hubby. He sowed a sprouted potato in the pot when we returned from home (India). It took 91 days to harvest; I would like to share photograph too.
A simple yet delicious…happiness guaranteed…
