Bread Aloo Sev chat

Now, I really don't know if I can call this a chat item, but I have no option. Anyway, this snack, which I prepared as an evening snack on Sunday is courtsey the potatoes that were leftover after boiling them for the Aloo Methi.

There was wheat bread too, and I just improvised again, when R asked for a snack in the evening. It was raining outside, and I too felt like having something a little spicier, than what we normally have.

Things you need:

Wheat bread - cut into small pieces - 4-5 slices

Potatoes - boiled, peeled, and sliced - 3

Onions - finely chopped - 2

Green chilly - 1

Ginger paste - 2 tsp

Red chilly powder - 1 tsp

Pepper - 1/4 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp

Jeera powder - 1 tsp

Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp

Sev or bhujia - 1/2 cup

Coriander leaves - chopped - 1/4 cup

Lemon - 1/2

Salt - to taste

Oil - 2 tbsp


  • Heat oil in pan, and sautee the onions with the green chilly and ginger paste
  • Add the potatoes and all the powders and mix
  • Mix the bread with salt into the pan and keep stir frying on low flame
  • Add pepper, and squeeze the lemon slice evenly over the mixture
  • Garnish with the sev/ bhujia, and the coriander leaves

If you have imli chutney or paani, you can add that too to the dish

Serve hot with tomato sauce
