Sukhi Bhaji – Farali Recipe – Potato Bhaji

Ready in 10 minutes, this is a farali recipe of Gujarati potato sukhi bhaji or dry potato bhaji which is a combination of spicy, sweet, tangy and nutty.  A delicious and easy potato sabzi with nuts for extra flavor. It is made often for upvas as a bataka ni sukhi bhaji. Also known as sukhi aloo bhaji.
Sukhi bhaji served with farali accompaniments of yogurt and masala peanuts.

Although it is a farali recipe, I LOVE the taste and we have it with some garam poori even when not fasting. If not fasting, I would even add some garlic to the recipe!

What do you eat farai sukhi bhaji with?

This was one of my favorite farali foods. Easily pairs with some yogurt and masala peanuts for a filling upvas meal. If fasting, you can have with rajigira poori as well. If not fasting, we love to have it with masala rotli.

Key Ingredients

As you can see in the picture below, this doesn’t require many ingredients! Since this is the case, I recommend not skipping on ingredients. They all come together for big flavor!

Roasted, ground peanuts: I keep a jarred bottle of roasted, ground peanuts at home. It helps save time for many recipes. I like using crushed nuts because it coats the potatoes and gives it a great taste throughout. If you prefer, you can lightly pan fry some peanuts to add to the bhaji instead.

Curry leaves: If you do not have a curry pata plant at home, you can easily find these at your local Indian store. The leaves are sold in bunches there.

Potatoes: I used Russet potatoes.

Tips For Making the Sukhi Bataka Bhaji

  1. Cooking moves quick: Have all the ingredients ready ahead of time – boil and cut the potatoes!
  2. Cut potatoes in medium size pieces. If cut too small they will become mushy.
  3. If you like crispy potatoes, add an extra teaspoon of oil
