Aloo Chokha (Aloo ka bharta) | Mashed Potato recipe

Aloo chokha is mashed potatoes with spices from the Bihari cuisine. Usually, aloo chokha is eaten as a side for Litti. You can eat it as a side for roti or dosas.  Sometimes I eat as it is with a few salad veggies as a light meal.

Potato is a versatile vegetable and often misunderstood. They are rich in vitamin C, B6,  folate, iron, magnesium, and potassium. And they provide instant energy, often eaten as post workout meal.

Potatoes taste yummy in all forms – baked, mashed, boiled, steamed, fried. Occasional frying is also good if we use cold pressed oils. Potato starch is used in baking as well for making gluten-free bread or biscuits.
