Aalo sewai waale!


I ate this snacks first time on eid during my childhood days. There was a muslim family friend and my family was very close to them. I used to call the head of the family dadaji and his wife dadiji; dadiji was a fantastic cook and this was one of her cuisines I loved a lot 🙂 She made fantastic biryani too and those dry chickens..yummy ( I used to eat meat that time). Anyway, the specialty of this dish is its simplicity-just salt and lemon juice no more spices! Lets have a look at the whole recipe..


* Potato – 4 pcs.
* Green chilli – 1 pc.
* Salt – to taste
* Lemon juice – 1 tbsp
* Vermicelli (sewai) – 2 cups (crushed)
* All-purpose flour (maida) – 2 tbsp
* Oil – to fry


* Boil potatoes, peel and mash them.
* Add salt, chopped green chilli and lemon juice to the mashed potato. Adjust the quantity of lemon juice, if required. Its taste should be prominent.
* In a bowl, take maida (all-purpose flour) and add water to make a thin batter.
* In a plate take sewai (vermicelli).

* Now heat up oil in a kadhai. Make balls of the potato mixture and dip it in the maida solution.
* Now roll them over the sewai and deep fry till golden brown.

Serve hot with chutney or sauce!
