My Notes:

  • I used the press which has holes slightly bigger hole than our idiyappam press as aloo bhujia is a bit thicker than our traditional omapodi.
  • Potato Sev cooks faster so be careful , it gets browned quickly.
  • Cook in low medium flame and regulate heat as and when it goes high / low.
