Chatpate Aloo


3 cups potatoes boiled peeled and cubed in byte size 4 tablespoons oil, I like canola oil 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, jeera 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons green chili finely chopped, adjust to your taste 1/4 teaspoon chili flake 1 teaspoon finely shredded ginger 2 tablespoons tamarind paste (do not use concentrated Tamarind) 1/4 teaspoon sugar 1/4 cup cilantro chopped 2-3 tablespoons water


Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Oil is the right temperature when cumin seeds crack immediately after being put in the pan. Add cumin seeds after seeds crack add potatoes and sprinkle the salt over potatoes. Stir-fry until potatoes are light golden brown this should take about 6-7 minutes. Add ginger, green chilies and chili flakes. Stir for about a minute. Add tamarind paste, and sugar mix it well. Add water as needed about 2-3 tablespoons. Potatoes should be moist. Turn off the heat and add cilantro. Mix it well and serve chatpata aloo hot.
