How to make Masala Aloo

  1. Pressure cook or boil potatoes until they are well cooked.

  3. In a large bowl, toss the pieces in rice flour coating well, keep aside.
  4. In a large non-stick wok / kadai, heat the oil.
  5. Add asafoetida and cumin and carrom seeds. Once the seeds splutter, add the coriander powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt to the oil.
  6. Stir well so that all the spice powder including salt, gets cooked in oil.
  7. Do this on a low flame so that none of the spices burn. Immediately, throw in the rice flour tossed potato chunks, stirring gently to coat with the spices and oil.

  9. Garnish with finely chopped coriander.
