Aalu 65






Aalu 65 is one of the veg starter made from potatoes. The origination of 65 is with regard to a new chicken based dish called Chicken 65 introduced in 1965 at the famous Buhari Hotel Restaurant in Chennai. Chicken 65 became very popular across India and later different dishes using Potato, Paneer, Mashrooms etc came up using the same recipe and with slighter variations. Aalu means Potato in Hindi and I have used the same recipe that of chicken 65. Also do check other starters like Gobi Manchurian, Idli Manchurian, and Bread Masala.

Preparation :
   



  1. The first step in making Aalu 65 is partially boiling the potatoes. Peel off the parboiled potatoes and cube. The cubed potatoes are needed to be deep fried by adding all the ingredients mentioned under "To make fried Potatoes" one by one except oil.
  2. Gently mix the ingredients without adding water and rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile heat a oil in a deep frying pan and check for the required hotness. Put well coated potato cube into oil and fry them till they are crisp and golden. Remove the fried potatoes onto absorbent paper and keep aside.
  3. Heat a skillet in a medium flame and add oil. Add finely chopped garlic and roast for few seconds,  Add slit green chillies and curry leaves and saute. Add yogurt, chilli powder and mix well.
  4. You have to add food colour to look restaurant type dish. But this is purely optional. Instead of that you can use less spicy dry red chilli paste. For that you have to soak 3 dry red chillis in warm water for about 45 min and blend them using little water into fine paste. This gives good color to your dish and also good from health point of view.If you are not using dry red chillies then increase the quantity of green chillies.
  5. Add salt and add fried potatoes into the gravy. Let the potato gets nicely coated with gravy. Heat until all the moisture goes out and becomes dry.
  6. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve as a starter.
