How to make Aloo Posto

  1. Soak poppy seeds for half an hour and make a paste of it. Add the dry red chilli while making the paste. (the soaking of poppy seed results in good paste.)
  2. Now heat oil in wok and add dry red chilli for seasoning. Fry the potatoes under medium flame by covering with a lid. When the potatoes are half cooked, add the sliced onion, green chilli and salt. Cook till the onions become little brown in color.
  3. Now it is time to add our main ingredient poppy seed paste. If require you can add little water. But cook well so that there should not be any raw flavour of poppy seed paste.
  4. Turn off the gas when the gravy becomes dry and addition of one teaspoon of mustard oil on top to enhance the taste of this dish.
