ingredients

Aloo (Potatoes) – Traditionally Pahadi variety of potatoes are used in making this recipe. If you can get them make sure to use those, otherwise you can use normal potatoes that are available at hand.

Pahadi aloo (potatoes) are slightly sweet in taste which helps balance the spicy flavour.

Masala Paste – To make masala paste, we will need whole coriander seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, green chillies and coriander leaves (cilantro). We will need to grind this to a coarse paste. You can also use a mortar and pestle to make this coarse masala paste.

Spices & Herbs – Additionally we will need basic Indian spices like hing (asafoetida), turmeric powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder and garam masala powder.

We will also need, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and dry red chillies for tadka.

Seasonings – We will season this aloo gutke with salt. While serving you can sprinkle a dash of lemon juice to give a little tang to the dish.

Oil – Traditionally aloo ke gutke is cooked in mustard oil for its smokey and pungent flavour. I dislike the taste hence I have used sunflower oil instead.
