daily Prompt- Pour Sugar On Me
What is your favorite sweet thing to eat? Bread pudding? Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies? A smooth and creamy piece of cheesecake? Tell us all about the anticipation and delight of eating your favorite dessert. Not into sweets? Tell us all about your weakness for that certain salty snack.
My favorite snack; also my weakness was Mangal Bhai’s Aloochop/ Aloobonda. Potato,onion,salt, chilly, coriander leaves filling inside gram flour batter and deep fried in oil. Seems nothing special, no?
Its speciality was magic of mangalbhai’s hand and his magic spices.
He never shared it with anyone. It was his trade secret.
He used to make it in the evening. First he prepared potato filling. He fried boiled meshed potato with onion and his special ingredients. Whole locality would fill the air with mouth-watering aroma and made small balls, flatten them and kept aside. Then he prepared gram flour batter, there again he mixed some special ingredient. When he dipped potato ball in batter and deep-fried them on medium fire in hot oil,they doubled in size and were spongy. Almost everyone in locality would get in line to buy them.
I have tasted potato chops in many cities but no one can beat our Mangal bhai’s potato chops.
