How to Make Potato Baji

  • Boil potatoes, peel the skin and cut them into pieces.

  • Mix the chilli powder and blend.
  • In a vessel, on low flame, splutter mustard seeds. Add the sliced onions and saute till they turn brown.
  • Add the minced masala and fry till they change colour.
  • Add the tamarind paste with chilli powder and saute.
  • Add the potatoes, salt and simmer.
  • Add a little water for it to blend, but keep it sufficiently dry.
  • Alternately, you may pare the raw potatoes, cut them in cubes and boil in this masala with a little hot water added, till they cook.
  • The water should be just one inch higher than the potatoes.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.
