Aloo achari is a very popular dish, I have two recipes that I follow. This one uses the typical southie masala.

2 large potatoes.

2 tsp. Chilli powder

¼ tsp turmeric powder

½ tsp. mustard-fenugreek seeds roasted and powdered

1 tbsp. Oil.

¼ tsp. Mustard

¼ tsp. Asafoetida

Salt to taste.

Lime juice 2 tbsp.


Peel and parboil Potatoes, sometimes I even boil them good and proper.

In a wok heat the oil, drop in the mustard seeds, asafoetida, mustard-fenugreek seeds powdered, and chilli powder.

Now add the parboiled potatoes after dicing it.

Add salt to taste and close shut. Let it cook

Spread the lime juice and maybe dress with finely chopped coriander.

Goes well with roti, I also use it with curd rice or just to binge at times.
