Once the oil is nicely hot (if the oil moves very loosely on the surface of the pan or wok without too much sticking to it then it is nicely hot) then add cumin seeds and mustard seeds in the oil and fry it.

It is important to fry the seeds properly, if you don’t then it will provide its raw flavour in the recipe which we don’t want.

NOTES

  • As we have to use boiled aloo in this recipe don’t use over boiled potatoes or it will get too mushy at the end of the recipe as we have to cook it during the recipe as well.
  • I have tried to make it as simple as possible but if you want to make it more spicy the you can add 1 tbsp of garam masala as well with other dry spices.
