Mint-flavoured potato mash dipped in a typical flour batter, coated with powdered beaten rice, and deep-fried till temptingly crisp. Hear the crunchy poha crackle as you drain these on absorbent paper, and be tempted to take a bite even before you finish frying the remaining balls! indeed, this is a delectable snack that has both a traditional and modern hue, satisfying both young and old. Serve the aloo kurkure balls hot, with sweet and sour sauce or a chutney of your choice.
