Spicy Potato Fry / Spicy Aloo Fry

Dear All,

Spicy Potato Fry

Its been a while since I last posted a recipe which was not a cake so today I thought lets share a very simple and satisfying dish. This is my version of Spicy Aloo Fry! Who doesn't love potatoes? I am yet to come across anyone who doesn't like potatoes :) Its one of those vegetable which gives that happy feeling in whichever form you have it say french fries, cutlets, sandwiches, stuffed etc.

Aloo fry is ample around my home, I make it at least once a week. Its one of those dishes which I can have all by itself also spicy, masaledar...and delicious! Slurp! Ok lets get started with the recipe shall we?

Spicy Potato Fry

Spicy Potato Fry
Serves 2
5 - 6 big potatoes
2 big onions finely chopped
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp jeera powder (cumin seeds powder)
1 pinch hing (asafoetida)
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp chaat masala
2 to 3 tbsp fresh coriander leaves finely chopped

  • Wash and chop the potatoes in 1 inch cubes
  • In a heavy bottom pan heat the oil, once its hot enough add in mustard seeds and let it splutter.
  • Now add in hing, chopped onions, chopped potatoes, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, jeera powder and salt.
  • Mix well, cover and cover the potatoes over slow heat for 10 to 15 mins.
  • Make sure to check on them from time to time so that they do not burn. Little bit brown is fine as it gives that rustic look
  • Once the potatoes are almost cooked add in garam masala , chaat masala and lime juice and again cook for another 2 mins.
  • Finally add in chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve these spicy potatoes with roti or rice.
  • I love to have these all by itself or with hot rice drizzled with ghee :)

    Could you please share some recipes of some stuff that can be made super quick n easy? I live in a PG and we have an induction stove but I haven't tried cooking anything yet because I'm unsure of what could comprise of a single-dish meal. Consequently I always end up ordering food and now it's wreaking havoc on my body and skin ;(

  25. Will definitely try this!!I love potatoes specially something dry!!
