How to make Makhana Aloo Crisp

  1. Roast the makhana in a pan with little bit of ghee until crunchy and coarsely powder it.
  2. Mash the potatoes and add all the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Check the salt and spices and adjust to suit your taste.
  3. Shape the aloo makhane mixture into small balls and pan fry them in very little oil until golden brown on both sides.

Ragi or amaranth flour makes these balls super crispy.
