Who says a person cannot feast when fasting! Faral means "fast" and farali pattice are designed specifically for those who are fasting.
The name itself says, “Farali” meaning fast and pattice meaning “dumpling”.
Farali pattice is a famous Gujarati snack which is consumed especially during the fasting days or religious occasions or also can be even had as a evening snack.

Other ingredients like roasted and coarsely powdered peanuts, finely chopped coriander (dhania), chopped raisins (kismis), chopped cashew-nuts (kaju), ( Both raisins and cashew-nuts enhance the taste and the mouthfeel of the Farali pattice) ginger-green chilli paste, sugar and lemon juice are also added and mixed together.
Next mixture for potato only needs potatoes and arrow root for binding, we have used arrowroot flour as this is a fasting recipe. If you are not fasting then use cornflour. The potato mixture is flattened and the stuffing is put in the middle and is sealed by bringing all the sides together and shaped round. The farali aloo pattice is then rolled in arrowroot till evenly coated from all the sides, the coating of arrowroat adds a unique dimension to this otherwise common dish and further it is deep-fried till turns brown in colour.
