ACHARI ALOO (SPICED DESI STYLE POTATOES)

This easy potato dish can be made in a jiffy and tastes sooo amazing!
You can serve them with almost anything or even as a side dish…i served them with puris…puris are just like rotis but deep fried ( need to do a video!!!)
Honestly if only i had someone to film me everyday in my kitchen or cud afford some fancy equipment which i could set up…any volunteers??
Back to the recipe….its soo easy!!! and so flavorful…if you try it you will love it
INGREDIENTS FOR 3 (more or less)
500 grams of boiled potatoes,. peeled and chopped
1 large onion chopped
1/4 cup or more of green bell pepper (capsicum) cubed
1 inch piece of ginger, chopped
a few green chillies chopped
1 teaspoon each of cumin, fennel(saunf) and nigella seeds(kalonji or onion seeds)
1/2 cup of chopped fresh coriander leaves
1/2 teaspoon of Nitu Didi pure turmeric powder
salt to taste
juice of 1/2 juicy lime or to taste
3 tablespoons of oil
METHOD:
Heat the oil in a  pan and add the cumin seeds and let them splutter for a few seconds and then add the chopped onion and ginger with salt. Let the onions soften and then add the nigella seeds (kalonji/onion seeds) and then the fennel seeds(saunf) and let it cook for 30 seconds. Add the green chillies and the bell peppers (capsicum) and then the boiled and chopped potatoes. Add the chopped coriander and lemon juice,and cover and cook till heated thoroughly.
Thats it!! Serve with naan, rotis or puris or parathas… good enough to eat on its own or as a side dish, combined with meat or daal or even as a different tasting samosa filling!!

NITU DIDI TIP: for a jain recipe just omit the ginger and garlic!!
