  • 500 g - baby potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 tbsp - Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp - chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp each - coriander and cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp - Mango powder

  • How to Make Aloo Jeera:

    1. Boil the potatoes until tender.
    2. Heat oil in a skillet and saute the cumin. When it browns slightly, add onions, ginger-garlic paste and salt, and cook until soft.
    3. Add all the spices, except kasoori methi, and saute some more. Sprinkle a little water.
    4. Cook until the mixture dries out again - for about 1 to 2 mins.

    6. Just 2 mins before switching off the stove, crush the kasoori methi with your hands and sprinkle on top of the potatoes. Give it a stir.
