Crispy Potato Snack/ Potato Murukku

When someone gives me some potatoes, I use them as a star ingredient for some outstanding snacks. No doubt. Yes, nothing is great than a spicy crispy snack to savor along with a nice cup of tea when you are bored and lazy at the end of a workday. The sight which we never tire of. Isn' t it? Especially in Indian cuisine, the use of herbs and spices create a lip-smacking flavor which makes Indian food such a heavenly delight.  Potato snacks are my favorite snacks recipes which I love to experiment with. A versatile veggie which can be easily converted into a snack or a side dish or a main course. Healthy breakfast with potatoes like potato stew, mashed potato toast, chapati with potato garlic dip helps us to stay alerted till afternoon or a lunch meal. Lunch meals with potatoes fill me up easily. Here I come with an evening snack recipe with potatoes. Potato Chakli / Potato murukku/ Crispy potato rings are little spicy, cheesy and crispy snack which tastes very close to store-bought potato chips. My kids are addicted to store-bought snack chips especially potato wafers,  potato crisps, potato rings of various brands. They always need such snacks chips while hanging out in park or beach. So as a food blogger why can't I try such snacks at home? Yeah!

Potato Chakli / Potato murukku / crispy potato snack is a very tasty and crispy snack recipe which is very simple and easy to make. Murukku is a savory crunchy crispy snack which is originated in South India and is a popular snack for festivals like Diwali, Holi etc. As the main ingredient for preparing this potato chakli is potatoes, you can make them within minutes. This snack is also called as Aloo chakli / Aloo murukku / crispy potato jalebi like so. You can make this potato snack or potato murukku in various ways. Here I used grated potatoes for making this snack. Some prefer making this snack with mashed or grinned potatoes and rice powder without any spices to make this crispy snack. You don't need a murukku press or a murukku mould, instead, u can use a piping bag. As an Indian, I love working with spices and so I added some chili powder, garlic powder along with some mozzarella cheese and beaten egg that makes this snack very special. As kids love everything cheesy, they will crave this snack more for sure. For those who care about health can skip the use of cheese in this recipe. So let's see how to make potato chakli/potato murukku at home.
