Aloo Bora



  • Potato- 2 medium size cut in thin strips
  • Lentil Dumplings- depends on your taste
  • Chilli powder- 1tsp
  • Salt-1 tsp
  • Mustard and Green chilli paste- ground in a food processor (1 tsp and 2 nos.)
  • Oil- 4 tablespoon for cooking and frying
  • Turmeric powder- 1 tsp


Make a paste of Chana dal flour, chilli powder and salt and make small balls in your hands and pour them into the heated oil. Fry them till red and then keep them aside in a paper towel.

Then fry the potatoes for sometime. then add some chilli powder, salt to it once fried.

Then add the lentil (chana dal) dumplings. Make a paste of the mustard seeds and green chillies and pour with the potatoes and the dumplings. Fry this mixture for 5 minutes and add water (depending on the requirement).


It is a very delicious dish because of the tangy taste of the mustard. Its extremely spicy and remember not to overgrind the mustard as that might bring a bitter taste to the dish. If it doesn then add some drops of lemon juice to it, to cover up the taste a bit. But remember it does not cover the bitter taste completely if its too bitter.

  1. When u add the water, smash a few of the fried potatoes. It adds some flavor and thickens the gravy a bit….
