Tharuva – Crispy Fried Vegetables | Crispy Fried Potato Slices

Indian snacks, oh my. This is my take on a snack from Bihar and Jharkhand. Tharuva, or Tharua, are vegetables that are crispy fried. Plantain is commonly cooked this way. However, I have made this with potato, beetroot, melons and pumpkin. Harder vegetables I slice very thinly. Others can be cut into strips or cubes.

The vegetables are mixed in a slightly wet mix of rice flour and spices, then shallow or deep fried. Salt can be sprinkled over before serving. You will love them and will find them quite addictive.
