Alur Chop / Potato Fritter –Two types



Alur chop / potato fritter is a simple delicious snack. We make it several ways with stuffing of egg or prawn / without stuffing and dip in besan(chickpeas flour) \ dip in egg and roll in bread crumb (too many twists). The interesting fact is the taste of different types of Alur chop / potato fritter so different. It even differs on uses of dry chilli and green chilli or fried onion or fresh onion. I will give two ways of simple Alur chop / potato fritter recipes today.
