Are you a vegetarian and wondered what the classic chicken 65 tastes like? What is about that simple fried chicken that everyone loves so much? Well today we’ve got a vegetarian recipe of the same. The recipe adapted from the classic is Potato 65 or Aloo 65, which replicates the exact flavour of the fried chicken but with potatoes so that everyone can enjoy it.
Potato 65 isn't a classic dish in itself, but one of the variations used as a vegetarian version of the spicy Chicken 65. The potatoes are the right replacement as their starchy nature makes them the perfect item to get that crispy skin with the rice flour. Except for that, the insides remain moist and fluffy, giving the perfect mouth feel that a 65 recipe requires. The major flavour in this recipe comes from the red chillies powder that is added to the final tadka or can also be added to the flour marination.
This recipe is a solution for most of you who avoid or refrain from having chicken but would love to try out the chicken 65 (vegetarian version) and experience the simple but fabulous flavour profile of the south indian fried snack. The recipe is made with potatoes, hence it doesn't take much time to marinate and rest, making it a much quicker cook. Making Aloo 65 is simple and convenient; this is a recipe that can be enjoyed by everyone.
