Jhurjhure Alubhaja Recipe(Bong's Special Fried Potato)

Jhirijhiri Alubhaja /Fried Potato/Potato Fritters   is  a very traditional  and popular Bengali preparation and tastes heavenly with dal and steamed rice...and in my house it's the most favorite thing. My daughter doesn't want anything if she is given this. Not only her,even I like it so much. In fact we enjoy our lunch or dinner lavishly with it along simple rice and dal.

The recipe is very simple and quick.


  •   2 Large Potatoes
  • Salt
  • 2 cups white oil


  • At first wash and peel off  the potatoes .Then cut into very thin and fine strips. To make it more quick you may grate the peeled potato.
  •  Then soak them in a large bowl of cold water for 1 hour.It would be much better if you could keep it inside the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  • Now heat oil in a deep bottom vessel.
  • When the oil gets very hot add the potato strips and fry them in medium flame until the potatoes become fried and crispy.
  • Meanwhile You may add curry leaves and peanuts for better taste.
  • Now strain the crispy and fried potato strips from pan with a perforated spoon and spread on a flat plate. Sprinkle salt and serve.

  • Tip: Don't try to fry all the potato at a time. It will stick to each other and you will not get the thin separate fried strips. So add them in two or three different batches and fry.
