Aloo Chops

These little mouthfuls, Aloo Chops, are balls made of seasoned mash potato, that are covered in bread crumbs then deep fried. On the streets of Sylhet, Aloo Chops are a very common street food. Massive karahis for deep frying the balls to a deep golden hue. Served with a simple onion salad and a dollop of ketchup. The flavours of Aloo Chops can slightly vary from vendor to vendor, but the main flavour and ingredient are the same most of the time.

However, after much experimentation this is my my go-to basic recipe for Aloo Chops.

Ingredients:

500g Baking Potatoes
25g Brown Onion, finely chopped
10g Fresh Coriander, finely chopped
½ tsp. Red Chilli Flakes
½ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Coarse Black Pepper
¼ tsp. Ground Coriander
¼ tsp. Ground Cumin
1 Egg
70g Breadcrumbs
10 Whole Coriander Leaves
Oil, for deep frying
