Aloo Bhujia/Bhunjia Sabzi recipe - A Bihari potato stir fry

Aloo bhujia sabzi or Aloo bhunjia means Potato stir fry in Bihari style .This potato stir fry is a popular North Indian dish from the state of Bihar,India.

Every time I make or eat Aloo bhujia,it reminds me of the lunch box,back in India, we call it tiffin box .Most of my North Indian class mates and a few Southies,lunch box special (most of the time) would be simply roti or chapathi with this ordinary Aloo bhunjia. And it smelled..YUMmyyyy..

When my friends were excited to go to school and busy with getting ready for the first class or period of the day,I was excited thinking what would be the special lunch of the day of my classmates and my nose was really bright, enjoying the aroma emitting from their lunch boxes and could easily figure out if they have brought aloo bhunjia today ...My nose has 6th sense like that !👃

When everyone at school admired Swapna a.k.a Vidya for her amazing dimples,I admired her for her mom's amazing Aloo bhujia and since we all shared and ate lunch most of the time ,I remember eating a major portion of her aloo bhujia with ease as if her mother prepared that lunch exclusively for me and me only and she being cute,pretty and very sweet didn't care at all .(I don't even remember if she ate mine ) .Good days !😜😍

At home ,whenever my mom made this potato stir fry ,my bro was a serious contender ,he would eat the major portion by hook or by crook . Wish I had a sister,a small one..whom I could control 👧😈..Brothers can be sometimes annoying!..huhh

If that wasn't enough,even my better half loves anything made with potato .I wonder if potato is every guy's weakness 😏..Why God whyyyyyyyy🙆

So,Aloo and aloo bhujia plays a vital role in my life .I make this easy-peasy potato recipe for chapathi/roti or poori .
