  1. Excellent snack. I make it without onions as i feel it then tadtes like madala dhOsai.

  2. Also known as battata vada in maharashtra and Gujarat.

  3. My experience, there is no need for soda and when making the potato mixture, half lime to it increases the taste.

  4. Mixed veggies can also be added to aloo to make it more tasty and nutritious.
