This is the last post for the month of October and I have one more recipe from Thali Spreads. For today it is Aaloo Daal Pakora which is served as a snack and is one of the favourite snacks of the locality of the Kumaon. It is served with chutney or tomato ketchup. 
The Aaloo Daal Pakora was very similar to the Delhi Aaloo Tikki, the stuffing is similar, but this is a very mild snack, and If I were to make it again I would use some more spice.  Adding some chilly would definitely make it much more delicious. Let the kids enjoy it as it is.
Aaloo Daal Pakora


4 boiled potatoes, mashed
1 cup mix dal ( Moong and urad)
1 tsp onion
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp garlic
1 tbsp green chilly, chopped
Coriander leaves
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste
2-3 tbsp cornflour mixed with water to form a batter.
Bread crumbs to coat 
Oil to deep fry


Peel and mash potatoes add salt and half of lemon. 
Chop onions, ginger, chillies and coriander leaves. Mix it with dal. Add lemon juice 
Flatten the potatoes and stuff the dal mixture. 
Make a cylindrical role and dip in corn flour batter.
Coat it with breadcrumbs, deep fry in oil.
