Alur Chop/Kolkata style Alur Chop/ Niramish Alur Chop/ Potato Fritters

Alur (Aloo r) Chop is a famous snack of Bengali Cuisine. It is a popular street snacks of Kolkata (Bengal) and
without alur chop & muri (puffed rice) evening gossip is incomplete. As Alu bonda is famous in South India,
similarly Alu r chop is popular in our West Bengal. It is also traditional evening snack of Bengal. I am sharing
the recipe of niramish alu r chop i.e no onion no garlic alu r chop. You can also add chopped onion while
making the stuffing. Preparation of alu r chop is really very easy and need common ingredients readily
available in your kitchen. I served alur chop in a newspaper cover just like  stall-style.

Alur Chop/Kolkata style Alur chop/ Niramish Alur Chop/ Potato Fritters

Ingredients :

For Stuffing

Potato - 2, large (boiled and mashed)

Green chilli - 2, finely chopped
Ginger paste - 1 teaspoon
Tumeric powder -  1 teaspoon
Dry red chilli - 1 
Roasted/Fried Peanuts - 2 teaspoon  (make small pieces using mortar and pestle)
Kalo jeera or kalonji or nigella seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Bhaja Masala (Roasted coriander, cumin and fennel seed powder)  - 1 teaspoon
Mustard oil - 1 tablespoon
Refined oil for deep frying

For batter :

Besan / Gram flour - 1 cup

Rice flour - 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Baking soda - a pinch
Salt to taste
Water for mixing


Heat mustard oil (1 teaspoon) and fry dry red chilli until it  becomes crispy. Now after cooling it make a
coarse powder using hand or mortar and pestle. Next heat oil and add nigella seeds and allow them to
crackle. Then add mashed potato, ginger paste, Bhaja masala, roasted peanuts, turmeric powder, roasted dry
red chilli powder, green chillies and salt. Instead of ginger paste you can also use grated ginger. Mix them all
in a uniform pattern. Now allow the mixture to cool and mash it again using your palm. Meantime, keep your
batter ready. Mix besan, rice flour, salt, red chilli powder, baking soda together. Add water in to it slowly to
prepare a thick consistency batter. Rest the batter for 15 minutes. Now make small round shape balls from
the potato mixture. Dip them in batter and deep fry. Serve them with sauce or puffed rice.
