How to make Jodhpuri Aloo Recipe
To begin making the Jodhpuri Aloo Recipe, wash and pressure cook the baby potatoes for four whistles, until they are well cooked. Peel the skin, cut them into halves and keep aside.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan, add the dry red chilli, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, white sesame seeds and let it splutter.
Add the red chilli flakes and flavour the oil.
Now, add in the boiled baby potatoes along with kashmiri red chili powder and turmeric powder. Season with salt and mix well.
Let the jodhpuri aloo roast on the slow heat, toss the baby potatoes occasionally from time to time.
We have to slow roast the potatoes until they are slightly crisp on the outside. This will take around 12-15 minutes.
Now, add in the amchur powder, combine well and switch off the heat. Garnish Jodhpuri Aloo with coriander leaves, sesame seeds and serve hot.
"I am an experimental cook by chance!" Yeah! Cooking to me has always been a form of stress buster. What started as a stress busting exercise post work, has now evolved to a much full time activity. I try to improvise the traditional recipes with easy to available ingredients at home. Thus, you will come across a lot of fusion in my cooking style. I try to include seasonal organic produce as much as possible in my cooking.
