How to serve aloo bhaja

You can serve aloo bhaji with rice, roti, paratha,pudi, etc.

You can eat with pakhal. As a Odia I love pakhal with aloo bhaja. Actually, this combination is a very good taste. If you don’t know what is pakhala then I am giving a little idea about pakhal i.e we add water to leftover rice which will be fermented in next morning. If you make immediate pakhal then add some curd in rice water and add a little salt. Then your pakhal is ready. Later I will share pakhal with you in detail.

You can serve aloo bhaji with paratha. Paratha with aloo bhaji gives a very good taste. You can take this combination for your lunch pack. You can give it to your children in a school tiffin box. In my college time, my mother always gave me paratha and aloobhaja in breakfast. I can’t forget those days now I am making paratha and aloo bhaja for my mother for breakfast.

You can serve aloo bhaji with roti. This is good in taste but this combination is dry type
so if you add some curd or other chatni with this combination then it is very awosm in taste.

You can serve this aloo bhaji with pudi. Spicy aloo bhaji with pudi gives a delicious taste. You can take this on any special occasion or festival.

If you want to eat any special puja then you can skip the onion and use jeera instead of mustard seed.

How to make best aloo bhaja

Make equal size aloo pieces because it can all the aloo pieces cook in one time otherwise one is cooked and another will not cook.
Don’t add more water otherwise, aloo will be overcooked and aloo bhaja contains water which is not good aloo bhaja.

If you making thin pieces then don’t add any water to boil. Only cover the aloo pieces with a lid and cook in low flame and check in interval. It cook automatically with itself.

This aloo bhaja is really very good in taste you should try for once. I am telling if you try once you will prepare several times.
