Recipe - Aloo fry (Bangaladumpa vepudu)

Potato fry


Potato fry is a very simple and easy to cook dish. This is called as Indian bachelor's dish. Meaning, there will be no person, who doesn't know how to make the potato fry. Potato fry goes well with rasam, and yogurt rice. Aloo fry and rasam make a good combination to serve.

Aloo fry can be made crispy without too much oil. Add salt to the chopped potatos and set it aside for 30 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water, and saute in oil.


  • Potato - 3 large (3 cups)
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Red Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Oil - 1 tablespoon


Preheat oi in a skillet, add onion and turmeric.

Fry them for 10 - 15 minutes. Potato will be almost ready to be done/cooked, add red chilli powder, salt.

Cook till potato is done well. Serve hot with rice or roti.

Preparation time 20 minutes

You are right Priya, to enjoy crispy potato fry, always add salt and set it aside for few minutes.... enjoy the crispy fry. My mother always use to say, any kind of fry should make sound in the plate "khan khan" as its signature - Fry.

Hey anonymous, why didn't you add your name? Will your friends tease? Let me know how it turned out :-)

Deepa thank you for your comment.

Delhibelle, I was about to write in the backets as "aloo sode ke" or something. My friends always tease me with the word "Sodna". Try applying the salt tip and see how it turns out.
