Aloo fry

which is something different from the normal pan fried potatoes. The masala used is similar to that used for dum aloo. This is in a dry form and maybe you can vary this to make a dum aloo gravy. I will try that soon and post it. This goes well with roti, rice and typical south indian gravies also - a welcoming change.Ingredients:
Baby Potatoes 1/2 kg
pepper 1 tsp
dhania seeds 1tsp
Garlic 4
Ginger 1 big piece
Red chilli powder 2 tsp
Haldi 1/2 tsp
Jeera 2 tsp
Spice powder - Cardomom,cinnamon,cloves 2 each fried over a dry tawa and powdered
Oil for frying
Salt to taste
Coriander to garnish

1) Pressure cook the potatoes
2) Peal and prick the potatoes with a fork
3) Grind pepper,Dhania seeds,garlic and ginger to a fine paste
4) Smear the potatoes with salt,turmeric,chilli powder,the ground paste and keep aside
5) Heat oil and season with jeera
6) Fry the potatoes till golden brown
7) Add the spice powder and garnish with chopped coriander

Great side dish for more kozhambu and my mouth is watering as I write this :P
